HEADSUP maintainers: Change in openssl package requires change in setup.hint

Hi guys,

according to the discussion starting here
the layout of the openssl package has changed so that the runtime
libraries are now in the libopenssl098 package, rather than in the
openssl base package.

The openssl package will be switched from 0.98 to 1.0.0 really soon now,
and that switch will also introduce the new runtime package
libopenssl100.  This package is slightly backward incompatible with

So, what we have to do is to convert *ALL* existing package dependencies
from "openssl" to "libopenssl098".  I'm going to do this in the
setup.hint files on cygwin.com, but, please do this in your local copy
of your setup.hint files as well.

As soon as I upgraded to openssl-1.0.0a-1, make sure that you keep your
package dependencies in shape when building a new package.  That means
to change from libopenssl098 to libopenssl100.

Here's the list of affected packages including their maintainers.
Unfortunately the list also contains four orphaned packages.  However,
isn't libcurl3 OBSOLETE, rather than ORPHANED?
