After more thought, I think that the reasoning should be that the
common Erlang build tools reference openssl. (openssl is used for
Erlang's crypto support, so the moment you run code that computes a
SHA1, you need it.) I'd be fine with host-erlang always having ssl
enabled since the error message you get when you don't have it enabled
is not obvious to anyone who doesn't use Erlang.
