Using the setup in the 0.8.1 tarball, plus the patches I have posted as
bug reports, the resulting .deb files _do_ link against libssl for
packages radiusd-freeradius-ldap, radiusd-freeradius-postgresql and
the file rlm_eap_tls-0.8.1.so in the radiusd-freeradius package itself.

Side note, Can someone point me at a reference for the problems openssl
has with licensing? I'm not too clear... Is it as simple as "Openssl
has forbidden linking to GPL software"?

Of course Pacman didn't influence us as kids. If it did,
we'd be running around in darkened rooms, popping pills and
listening to repetitive music.
