Updated mpop-1.4.10.ebuild

Dear proxy maintainer,
Dear Herbert,

Thanks, Herbert, for initiating this version bump. I'd like to add one more thing.

Attached you find an updated ebuild for the new mpop version 1.4.10.

I made the ebuild secure by default by disabling the openssl support as this code deprecated by upstream and unmaintained since about 10 years. It lacks newer TLS features and properly contains bugs [0,1].

The package is marked as unstable, the user base is probably small. So the case that someone of the user base wants OpenSSL/LibreSSL-only and no GnuTLS on the system seems neglectable.
