Building S2N

s2n is the new TLS/SSL implementation by Amazon.

I retrieved the git repository and tried to build it, only to have it crash while running a unit test.  I put some debugging statements in the test but they never showed up.  I was getting an “error 139” error and initial searches indicated it might have been a gcc problem.

Turns out, my stack was blowing up during initialization of an array and I needed to increase my stack size using “ulimit -s 16284”.  An interesting little problem for me since I haven’t worked in the C world for quite some time.
