Description Alex Xu (Hello71) 2021-09-11 13:39:50 UTC
According to, it is considered deprecated and is disabled by default upstream (which I confirmed in the Configure). It seems that it was originally conditional on USE=bindist, but after the patents most likely expired it was unconditionally enabled. Probably the best move is to remove it from the ebuild and use the openssl defaults.
