You can find there, unsigned so far,  skype-2.1.0.47-fc10.i586.rpm
(and another one for f9).  On that web page you will see in
requirements

    * Video card driver with Xv support.

    * Software requirements
    * Qt 4.2.1+
    * D-Bus 1.0.0
    * libasound2 1.0.12
    * PulseAudio 0.9.10+ (optional)
    * PulseAudio 0.9.15+ (optional recommended)

Only ldd on binaries give for ssl the same as above; which is not a
big surprise if you have "fc10" in a package name.  Well, the one
currently released says "fc5", even if "fc5" works with Fedora 11,
so this is quite a progress. :-)

Yes, there is a static version too; but a security update in an
underlying library will blow a big hole in such option.
