I'm not sure what the best way to handle this interaction is. This build (due to the OpenSSL licence) avoids using OpenSSL as a build depencency on Heimdal. I'm also not sure if the OpenSSL dependency on krb5 is useful anyway - but we might be stuck with it.

Now what I really need is a sponsor, or packager willing to take this effort over...
