This is a problem that exists for all packages that rely OpenSSL for
IDEA crypto functions.  This should be fixed in two steps:

    (1) OpenSSL should be modified to support build options of "idea",
	"rc5", "mdc2", and any other patented algorithms.

    (2) The packages that rely on OpenSSL for IDEA support, e.g.
	mail/cue and net/speakfreely, should have an install-time
	check that OpenSSL was built with the "idea" option.
