Hi magnum,

How did earlier version of DIGEST-MD5 do it? I wrote NULL in place of
mozilla_tests in struct fmt_main mozilla_fmt. However running the
benchmark gives  "Benchmarking: Mozilla [32/64]... FAILED (no data)"
message. Is this normal and expected message?

Also if I want to include this patch in jumbo, what would be a proper
way to modify the Makefile? I want this plug-in to be automatically
disabled in case NSS is not installed (instead of generating
compilation errors). Thanks!

I am adding OMP support for this patch currently and if there is
enough interest maybe this patch can go in jumbo. What do you think?
