There's already a rsaref and pgp2 pkg submission in progress; see my PR's
#5007 (rsaref) and #5011 (pgp2). Additionally, see PR #5008 (ssh with
proper RSA patent conformance). I'm going to import them as soon as I see
that the new ELF/a.out library changes in -current's <bsd.lib.mk> work
properly; it was that difference that made me hesitate importing them
earlier. I'll do my best to redo the pkgs to work both under 1.3 and

NO. FreeBSD's rsaref pkg fetches the rsaref sources illegally, according to
RSA's patent-protected license restrictions in the USA. See PR #5007 for a
patent-conforming method of retrieving the sources.
