I now created a new branch "1.7.9-jumbo-6-fixes" that is bugfix-only,
except for Dhiru's new formats (PKCS #12 and RAdmin v2.x). This branch
will lead to Jumbo-7 and end there. Anything committed there will be
merged to the other branches.

This is committed to magnum-jumbo, but not to 1.7.9-jumbo-6-fixes. We
have too little time to ensure it works with OSX.
