I believe these laws have changed a lot since the 90's.

But of course I'm no expert on this stuff :/

I didn't seem to easily find anything mentioning this on the OpenSSL
site either.

But the advertising clause in their licenses (you have to abide by
both licenses in their case, not just the one you like best) is
slightly annoying. It may not matter much though.

In any case, I would love to have an OpenSSL included in the image
personally - and it might even be necessary if Haiku distributes its
own included browser (webkit based or whatever). My opinion of course
:)
