The question is about making our package of openssl not use IDEA and rc5.
While not mentioned exactly the change I had in mind was adding 'no-rc5
no-idea' to CONFIGURE_ARGS.

If you (Itojun) could help me do it, I'd be happier with something like
libcrypto_{idea,rc5}. But I don't know how to do it, and I only have so
much energy I can give this. :-(

Take care,
