Subject: RSAREF anyone?

I installed a new sparc with NetBSD last week, pulled up to current and
built a bunch of packages. And then I tried to build ssh with RSAREF
and discovered that ftp.rsa.com/rsaref/README contains bogus information
(read: I can't get a copy of the RSAREF from ftp.rsa.com).
So, I just called RSA and was told that they've removed RSAREF due to
lack of support and interest. >:-( And furthermore, there is a new
product that contains the same functionality, but costs money.
So, what's the deal? I'm at a University, I don't use RSAREF for any
commercial use and I don't plan on it in the future. But I want
to stay at least vaguely legal and well behaved. I know that I can
build ssh without the RSAREF, but what about PGP? Any suggestions?
And we might want to nuke the rsaref20 package. RSA just obsoleted it.
What a way to start the work week.
