I'm not being too careful, so I may be wrong. I've just bean glancing at
In programs/pluto/spdb_print.c function print_sa_attr_oakley the variable
"en" may not be initialized when it is used.
The obvious fix is to initialize it to NULL in its declaration.
The same bug appears in print_sa_attr_ipsec.
The same bug appears in print_sa_v2_trans.
print_sa_v2_attr looks like it should be fixed up so that it can have
the bug :-). But I haven't looked at it carefully.
I've not compiled the code but I would have thought that gcc, with
appropriate flags, would have warned about these bugs. Am I wrong?
Are other gcc-diagnosable problems being ignored? Are more -W flags
