Re: pkgin from 8.0/amd64 -> "SSL support disabled"?

you end up with a pkgin which is built with a libfetch which is *not*

insight into, I'm afraid.

This is because to have anything SSL in 8.x now you have to use pkgsrc SSL which means that a fully static pkgin would have to include a static version of openssl (which might well increase the size a lot).

Thus, if you rely on using "pkgin" and have a strong preference for
fetching the packages using https, you will find yourself at a dead
end (which is pretty terrible).

To recover from this, you will need to rebuild and re-install libfetch
using pksrc, and then rebuild and re-install pkgin.  In libfetch you
can do "make show-var VARNAME=PKG_SUGGESTED_OPTIONS" to make sure
"openssl" is among the suggested options.

Would a manual install of the 9.0 pkgin from the CDN using pkg_install fix this wihtout requiring rebuild?
