Right, neither was the SSL case.
I don't know the reasons, maybe it is not available on all platforms which KDE 
supports.

Did anyone create an upstream bugreport for this?

I think there was no viable option in the case of OpenSSL, as not having 
support for HTTPS is a dead end.

Debian has a clear advantage with such problems, the highly appreciated effort 
to create a fine package granularity enables packagers to build alternative 
packages (one for feature disabled and one for enabled), but unfortunately a 
lot of other distributors still use huge packages, making it necessary to 
detect the availablity of certain features at runtime :(
