When trying to build a package that depends on openssl via buildlink (say,
"lynx"), the dependency on security/openssl now kicks in because the base
system version doesn't contain the "SA fix".  However, if the
ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES is not correct for openssl, its build fails.

This *SHOULD* make the build of the dependent package fail ... yet it
happily goes about building using the base system's openssl and simply
throws up warnings about "no package matching openssl>=..." at install
time.  Whee!  The "SA fix" didn't fix.

(I've now updated my base system, so this doesn't happen anymore, but this
may point to a much larger DEPENDS deficiency that needs fixing fast.  
Hence the critical/high severity/priority.)


Install lynx from pkgsrc on a pre-1.6_RC2 system with ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES
