According to /usr/doc/fetchmail/copyright, Fetchmail is licensed under
the GPL plus a "NO-VIRUS CLAUSE". Also it's copyright Eric Raymond,
rather than a long list of people, many of whom cannot be contacted to
ask for permission.
So, I would guess that the problem that Mutt had with openssl doesn't
apply to Fetchmail.
The maintainer can always ask Eric if they are unsure.
