Using an internal SHA1 implementation isn't a good idea as any bugs in
that will likely go unfixed for years. Is there some specific system
which doesn't have any library providing a SHA1 implementation?

I've reverted this patch; you're welcome to create a patch which uses an
external SHA1 library of your own making, but I don't want to be
in the position of maintaining this code.
