You can find a newer one here:

The reason we switched to newer versions is that the old ones had
security problems.  Unfortunately, the new ones and the old ones are
incompatible in their interfaces, so we cannot use both.

Sean, could you please fix this for the next pretest and the upcoming
release?

Patches are welcome.

I'm closing the bug report.
