RE: libcrypto names



Why do you say your rpm install would fail?  It should find the library
and carry on accordingly. Have you tried it?

While that would functionally work, my RPM install would still fail --
unless I use --force, I suppose.  That's ugly, though, as we don't
have --force written into any of our scripts, crontabs, Cfengine
rules, etc., and don't want to.  I'm looking for a way to do this
"politely," I guess.
