Hi, Håvard.

One reason might be that it's not normally needed by a particular
package (i.e. it's supported, but most people don't use it).  Another
reason might be that it increases the dependencies for the package.
Another reason might be to avoid linking with OpenSSL since it has had a
difficult security track record, and linking against it could be seen as
a security liability.
