Hello again,

pgcrypto 0.4 had a nasty obscure bug, when after including
postgres.h the BYTE_ORDER is not defined, it compiles code for
both big-endian and little-endian machines.  This makes MD5 and
SHA1 algorithms in internal library produce garbage, ofcourse
now HMAC and crypt-md5 produce junk too.  Also Rijndael on
big-endian machine may be broken.  If you used any external
library, you are fine.

Affected platforms: FreeBSD *, probably more.
Not affected: Linux/glibc 2.2, NetBSD 1.5.

Morale: _do_ run regression tests before real use...
