It will...geez...

I forced dependencies on the US version for multiple reasons:

   1:  to make sure there were no dual libarary problems 
   2:  to make sure everyone was at the same level
   3:  to prepare to get rid of the non-US version of kdelibs

kdelibs-nossl is going away along with the non-US kdelibs.  They are
being replaced with a kdelibs that will go into main and a kdelibs-crypto
that will go in non-US.  The -crypto will only contain the modules necessary
for SSL support and nothing more.

I'm not taking SSL away from anyone.  I'm just trying to migrate over to a
new format while verifying that bug reports are due to actual bugs in the
code and not becuase there are 2 seperate packages.

Keep using Netscape or whatever your using until I'm done and until 
KDE 2.0 is officially released..until then expect that I'll be messing
with things until it works best.
