Nope, I think there's something fishy with the openssl package which
I'll check tomorrow.

libcrypto has a soname of There are two reasons why
this is so. Either no soname is passed to the linker, in which case the
library name is used, or it's explicitly given. openssl *also* provides
the symlink, pointing to

The most interesting thing would be what jpilot has in its DT_NEEDED
fields. John, could you please run 'objdump -p jpilot' and post the
output (the lines beginning with NEEDED would suffice)?

At least the jpilot 0.99 in our source RPM has no configuration option
for libcrypto and AFAICS, configure does not search for libcrypto. So
I'm wondering where the need for libcrypto is coming from.
