Someone inquired as to what I meant about the OpenSSL package, so to
be lazy/informative, my response is pasted below.
Mid last year, OpenSSL removed some patented algorithms due to patent
trolling^H^H^H "legal reasons." These include elliptic curves / ECDSA,
IDEA, RC5, and MDC-2 . Though this is apparently (?) a patch that
might (?) be optional. If not optional, it's certainly easy to block
when installing OpenSSL from source.
 "hobble-openssl" patch code:
 *wordless rage at patent trolls*
