    Solved net/samba413 encryption, security/gnutls on Aarch64

    Hello. It seems security/gnutls from ports and pkg are not making use of the AES acceleration features from the ARMv8 Cryptographic extensions. This makes Samba server encryption incredibly slow. I've observed this on a Mac M1 FreeBSD 13-RELEASE virtual machine and also a RockPro64 running...
