Description Mira Ressel 2018-10-22 10:29:41 UTC links against libcrypto, so the ebuild should depend on dev-libs/openssl or dev-libs/libressl.

I've verified that gdal works with both libressl and openssl, but I haven't checked if it can be compiled when neither is present.

My USE flags for gdal are "armadillo aux_xml curl geos gif hdf5 jpeg jpeg2k netcdf png postgres python spatialite sqlite threads", but due to the excessive build time, I haven't been able to check if libgdal always links against libcrypto, or if one of those USE flags triggers the linkage.
