	p5-SSLeay pkged.  The pkg's DESCR:

This perl module provides support for the https protocol under LWP, so
that a LWP::UserAgent can make https GET & HEAD & POST requests. Please
see perldoc LWP for more information on POST requests.

The Crypt::SSLeay package contains Net::SSL, which is automatically
loaded by LWP::Protocol::https on https requests, and provides the
necessary SSL glue for that module to work via these deprecated modules:


Work on Crypt::SSLeay has been continued only to provide https support
for the LWP - libwww perl libraries. If you want access to the OpenSSL
API via perl, check out Sampo's Net::SSLeay.
