Thanks Paul, I am already preparing a patch with new function names so
that those programs keep working unmodified. I believe it is safe to
replace int32_t with time_t because it was only used like that in
ldns_rrsig_check_timestamps which wasn't exported from the library
anyway. It will all be in trunk when you wake up tomorrow (which means I
am going to finish it tomorrow morning myself).
