Rebuild squid from SRPM
Why does this patch (top few lines of squid-2.5.STABLE3-build.patch)
exist in the squid SRPM?
I can build squid-2.5 succesfully without it, and if it is in fact
needed then it ought to be pushed upstream to the official squid source:

There appears to be no comment on it in bugzilla nor %Changelog of the
I forwarded it onto one of the core squid developers and his comment
"I don't understand this patch. It kills the NON_EXPORT_FIRST ssl
option making it a no-op.
The code already deals with the situation where the SSL library does
not have this option.
Why is this patch needed? Have not seen any need of it during all the
years while the SSL support in Squid has been developed on RedHat boxes..
I removed the questionable part from the patch for the latest rawhide
