Test Vidalia & Tor Browser Bundles with libevent2

Hello or-talk,

I've made a few test bundles with libevent2 and I'd like people to test them --
run them for a few days and make sure nothing too wacky happens as a result.
These are not officially supported, and until the changes are incorporated with
official packages, they will only be updated if I have time.

How to report bugs on these packages
When in doubt, use our bug tracker: 

The libevent bug tracker is here:

For build problems I've requested help with, private email is fine. 

The Vidalia bundle is using libevent 2.0.10-stable, OpenSSL 1.0.0c, and Tor

The Tor Browser Bundle is a little more exciting, since it has the same changes
as above, which means there's now a Windows Tor Browser Bundle with a Tor alpha
in it whereas previously there was only a stable version:

Mac OS X
Vidalia bundle with libevent 2.0.10-stable, OpenSSL 1.0.0c, and Tor This *will not* work with 10.4. If anyone knows how to make
OpenSSL 1.0.0c work with a 10.4 SDK, please contact me.

Tor Browser Bundle for OS X with the same changes as above, as well as the removal of Polipo: 

Linux Tor Browser Bundle
x86_64 only!

I've updated libevent to libevent-2.0.10-stable, OpenSSL to 1.0.0c, and rebuilt
OpenSSL with -Wa,--noexecstack which should prevent SELinux on the latest
Fedora(s) from refusing to let it run. I built all of the libraries and
binaries against a newer glibc (2.11.2-7) so if you're running an old one, it
won't work. (This is not the support policy for official bundles, but Qt won't
build against an OpenSSL built with -Wa,--noexecstack on Debian Lenny with
glibc 2.7 for reasons I've yet to figure out. Anyone who might have insight
into this is encouraged to email me.)
