By default vpnc installs vpnc-script into /etc/vpnc/. It's been debated
on the list whether that's the right place and as far as I'm concerned
there is no "right" place, so we chose the "least wrong" one. Ideas are
always welcome. I'll have a look at the binary and source rpm tonight
if time permits.

OK, I found one thing: As openSUSE contains GPL packets that link
against openssl (e.g. Wireshark), please enable hybrid support in
the Makefile:

# The license of vpnc (Gpl >= 2) is quite likely incompatible with the
# openssl license. Openssl is currently used to provide certificate
# support for vpnc (hybrid only).
# While it is OK for users to build their own binaries linking in openssl
# with vpnc and even providing dynamically linked binaries it is probably
# not OK to provide the binaries inside a distribution.
# See for further
# details.
# Some distributions like Suse and Fedora seem to think otherwise.

# Comment this in to obtain a binary with certificate support which is
# GPL incompliant though.
#OPENSSLLIBS = -lcrypto

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
