I see libtasn1 is on 2.2 and the version that is installed in my
machine still has 1.8 (the same that is on the patch attached in the
relevant ticket in track (#2664)), so I can't update the book since I
can't guarantee a blind update; truth is that I have no time to update
packages to newer versions, especially libraries.

Anyway I'll contribute to the ticket if needed, but I can't apply the
patch as I had the intention to do when I put the first comment
in there (I also had the major updates to GnuTLS and friends ready for
commit but libtasn1 was missing from the boot at the time). In any case,
I apologize.

I will re-assign to blfs-book.
