Subject: Re: Dyna and OpenSSL <1.0.0

I still want to put more crypts into dyna, but for now, this handles this problem with whirlpool.

Added to dyna are sph_whirlpool and sph_tiger.

Dyna has been chopped up some. I moved all of the 'large' crypts into their own source file. They are pretty much cookie cutter code at the moment.

I also updated the docs, and now has all builtin-dynamic's built into it, and easier to use.  I also added Digest::Tiger and Digest::Haval.  There will be some concern with Haval.  perl only handles 5 round 256 bit. But there are 15 different haval functions (3 different round counts, and 5 different sizes).  I really do not like adding to dynamic, if I can not cross validate the test cases with pass_gen.  I will have to come up with some other tool to do this crypt.

The bleeding patch is the main code.  The memdbg patch only adds the memdbg.h to the dyna_big_crypt.c file.  It will only get added to the memdbg git tree.
