how comes that whenever i listen to OpenSSL related discussions it ends
in the same situation. well i remember that evolution people have the
same issues with the OpenSSL package. i don't get why the person who
creates OpenSSL decides for such a stupid licensing modell if no one
else is able getting their shit compiled against that stuff because of
licensing violations. to say this really pisses me off.

it's a known fact that a lot of 3rd party applications programmers,
either KDE, BALSA, EVOLUTION and whatever else seem to have this
problem, i don't get it why that guy doesn't simplify his licensing
