thanks, yes. i have the documentation for 2.8.6 as well, and i'll take suggestion regarding tls 1.2 under advisement.  but my question really was in reference to the relationship between any particular version's list of cipher suites, and the corresponding list of macs.  am i misinterpreting what these things mean?  if a particular version of gnutl includes things like sha512 in its list of macs, why do the cipher suites appear to not support it?
