I agree to a degree. src/crypto/external should never have happened.
Crypto regulations no longer different enough from general license
considerations to justify that. ipf is also a good example of how to not
do it. Keep all the source in one place (src/sys/external in this case)
and just put the reach-over build system in src/external.
