    Are these real concerns?  As far as I understand, the laws regarding
    crypto export and free software has been lifted.  Other free software
    projects seem to use crypto as well (e.g., GNU Wget that links with
    OpenSSL which isn't GPL, but usually considered a "system library").

The GPL does not actually say "system library"; that is a way of
referring to a more precise criterion which OpenSSL clearly does not

I will have to write to the wget developer about this.  Thanks for
reporting the problem.  Do you know of any others?
