Dear Dave,

The installation of sslinfo is only necessary for the unit tests, it is
not used at all in the driver itself. Obviously I wanted to test weather
we were actually using ssl, but it is not essential. It can be removed,
or an additional option can be introduced to ssltest.properties.
The relevant lines are in
org.postgresql.test.ssl.SslTest.driver(String connstr, Object[]
expected)

There are a few things still to be done with this patch.
1. the jdbc datasource interface was not modified at all,
so it is unaware of the new options,
2. it should be decided, what is the expected behaviour of sslmode=allow
or prefer (they might be omitted completely),
3. I have not tested certificate chains yet,
4. when a client certificate is available, the v8 and v9 servers
behave differently (BUG #5468 is fixed in v9) so different unit test are
needed to check this,
5. there is a list of options somewhere in the code, this should
be updated as well,
6. documentation.
