[xmlsec] Keys Manager Creation Failed

Hello Aleksey,

Hopefully you can help me.  I'm implementing Django SAML (
https://bitbucket.org/lgs/djangosaml2) in a project which relies on your
XMLSec library.  The application works flawlessly on my local development
environment (Mac), but returns errors on my staging server, an Amazon EC2
instance.  I'm struggling to isolate the issue.  The exception that is
generated in my SAML application is as follows:

library function failed:filename=/tmp/tmpZIPa5a.pem
library function failed:uri=/tmp/tmpZIPa5a.pem
Error: failed to load public key from "/tmp/tmpZIPa5a.pem".
Error: keys manager creation failed

I've installed XMLSec on the Amazon EC2 instance.  To do so, I had to
install from source.  The first note is that I receive failures when
running a "make check" as I reported here:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=725279.  That bug post has an
attachment of the output, but the two main failures are:

transform "rsa-1_5" and "rsa-oaep-mgf1p" not found

My question is this: does this sound like a library issue (missing library
or version mismatch)?

You ask that I supply following for a question or bug report:
XMLSec version number (or the snapshot date):
xmlsec version: xmlsec1 1.2.19 (gcrypt)

The platform/compiler you are using:
Amazon Linux AMI release 2013.09
Kernel: 3.4.76-65.111.amzn1.x86_64
gcc (GCC) 4.6.3 20120306 (Red Hat 4.6.3-2)

The exact xmlsec utility command line:

All the files mentioned in this command line:
** I'm not sure how to list these?

The xmlsec utility output:
** I don't know how to run the xmlsec utility

Additional library information from the Amazon EC2 instance that may be
libxml2.x86_64 version: 2.9.1-1.1.28.amzn1
libxml2-devel.x86_64 version: 2.9.1-1.1.28.amzn1
libxslt.x86_64 version: 1.1.26-2.7.amzn1
libxslt-devel.x86_64 version: 1.1.26-2.7.amzn1
OpenSSL version: 1.0.1e-fips

Thank you for your time and attention,
Derek Nutile
