Description Stefan Strogin gentoo-dev 2020-08-22 16:55:22 UTC
CURL_SSL is not needed. Other packages support different tls/ssl implementations simply with USE flags. It can be simply done here as well.

Examples can be found here:

ssl? (
    openssl? (
        !libressl? ( dev-libs/openssl:0= )
        libressl? ( dev-libs/libressl:0= )
    polarssl? ( net-libs/mbedtls:= )
    gnutls? ( net-libs/gnutls:= )
    nettle? ( dev-libs/nettle:= )

NB: "The important point to note is that USE=libressl acts as a discriminating flag between OpenSSL and LibreSSL. As such, it is not a pure implementation USE flag and is analogous to USE=libav. That is, USE=libressl is never mutually exclusive to any other USE flag and should therefore never appear in REQUIRED_USE".

can also be replaced with


(axtls and cyassl are no longer relevant, AFAIK)

I think this will also fix #588060 - cf.
