Description

We should contribute some development effort to making it easier to cross-compile and distribute binaries from nacl. The "libsodium" effort here is interesting, but it achieves its results by dropping all the fast assembly implementations from nacl (with the intention of adding them later).

See #8014 for more discussion. See http://nacl.cr.yp.to/ and https://github.com/jedisct1/libsodium for the libraries in question.

I'm putting this in the "Tor" component because Tor's the one that wants to use this stuff.

Not reasonable for a Tor ticket; libsodium also does seem to be doing fine on their own.
