        The epiphany and galeon-devel programs crash whenever you try to use
        any of the SSL features they have.  Just trying to log into a site
        using SSL results in a crash.

        Even though, mozilla-gtk2 (used directly by the other two) works
        perfectly, so it seems a problem either in epiphany / galeon-devel
        themselves or, more likely, in some of the dependent libraries.

        I see that both browsers get linked against libssl _and_ libnspr, so
        maybe the problem is here (conflicts between libraries providing SSL
        stuff... though this is just a guess).  Not sure yet.

        This is probably a bug in pkgsrc (not NetBSD specific), because those
        programs work fine in other systems (w/o pkgsrc).  I'm sending this
        PR to remind myself to fix this... but if anyone else wants to help
        debugging... ;)
        Open epiphany or galeon-devel.
        Go to a site that uses SSL for login (i.e., Sourceforge).
        Enter your username/password, hit "Login".
