 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.
