	i guess it is okay to do "no-rc5 no-idea", as an optional choice
	(default: install everything, with some switch: no-rc5 no-idea).
	to me the mechanism to exclude certain algorithm does not look clean
	in openssl, so i don't really recommend to exclude certain algorithm.
	(at least in the past, no-blah changed ABI and horribly broke things)
	package dependency is another issue i guess.
