No, it's an actual bug, observed on PowerPC (and the RPATH problem _was_
solved AFAICS).

Is `gnutls_x509_crt_get_dn_oid ()' supposed to return a null-terminated
string?  The documentation doesn't mention it and it seems that it's not
returning a null-terminated string.

In any case, using `scm_take_locale_stringn ()' instead of just
`scm_take_locale_string ()' can't hurt.
