libarchive patch

Libarchive supports crypto and hashing via OpenSSL, Nettle or mbedTLS. Add a RADIO option to select one or none of these. If none is selected, system libmd is used for hashing and crypto support is not built-in.

Distributing libarchive with LZO bindings violates LZO's GPL license. Remove LZO from OPTIONS_DEFAULT.

Fixed typo in CRYPTO_DESC
Comment 2 daniel.engberg.lists 2020-12-05 15:08:18 UTC
libarchive is at 3.5.0 and this change looks reasonable as far as I can tell
Comment 3 Greg Lewis freebsd_committer 2020-12-05 20:27:08 UTC
I'm ok with the crypto changes.

I don't understand the LZO change.  We distribute a lot of GPL 2 packages, how is this any different?  If we distribute an LZO package then I don't see how a package that links to the library from it is somehow a violation where the LZO distribution is not.
Comment 4 Martin Matuska freebsd_committer 2020-12-05 21:12:27 UTC
The main difference is that LZO is GPL and not LGPL. You cannot distribute software linked to a GPL-licensed library under a different license than GPL.
Comment 5 Greg Lewis freebsd_committer 2020-12-06 21:59:39 UTC
Good point.  Approved.
