Yes, and no (it is known not to be a bug). It is caused by
deciding to use OpenSSL (because its there), and then finding that it
doesn't work.

Now, we cannot guess *why* it doesn't work; most likely, the OpenSSL
libraries are shared libraries, and not found by your dynamic loader.

To overcome this, and use OpenSSL, you can set LD_LIBRARY_PATH or
LD_RUN_PATH. To overcome this, and not use OpenSSL, edit
