"The patents section of the README file lists patents
that may apply to you if you want to use OpenSSL. For
information on intellectual property rights, please
consult a lawyer..."
I can't find the README file that they're referring to. All
I want to do is install Samba so that a NetBSD box can serve
up a printer to some MS Windows machines at the office. I'm
supposed to hire a lawyer for this?! :-(
The same Web page says...
"You can configure OpenSSL so as not to use RC5 and
IDEA by using ./config no-rc5 no-idea"
...but I just get './config: Command not found.' and in
any case I'm not sure that this would change NetBSD's
opinion of the license.
