Balsa: Indirect linking to OpenSSL via LGPL and OpenLDAP libs

Hi everyone,
	I was wondering whether it would be legal for me compile and
link Balsa (GPL) to the libesmtp5 (LGPL) [1] and libldap2 (OpenLDAP PL
[2]) libs. Doing so results in a binary that is indirectly linked to
OpenSSL for which Balsa does not have a exclusion clause for at this
current time. I don't know whether this indirect linking will produce
a contaminated package that is unacceptable for main.

Yours sincerely,
Andrew "Netsnipe" Lau
