That depends.

After reading that problem I'm wondering if it's not the fault of the
openssl packaging.  The runtime shared libs cygssl and cygcrypto are in
the libopensslXXX package, but the engines are in the openssl package.

Yaakov, do you just change the dependency of the bind package or do you
think the engines should be moved to the libopensslXXX package?
