Please just concatenate the patches together into a single file. It's
easier to read then. It's also easier to deal with patches if they are
done against the current CVS tree, so that hunks don't break. Oh, and
unified diffs are nicer too if you can make them. Thanks.

I can't give many useful comments on the Windowsy code. But instead of
creating a new automatic variable with the thread-specific storage for
every function, can you (ick) make it a "global" variable, and #define
your "tsd->blah"'s to "blah" so that the code is more uniform?
This should help eliminate a lot of the #ifdef NETWAREs.

Also, is there any risk at all to having hooks to Netware's SSL
implementation? I wouldn't think so, because common sense doesn't
apply here.

Are you working on a 2.0 port by any chance?
