Obsolete package openssl-devel now depends on libssl-devel, if using the current
setup, so you get the correct packages installed and used: look at the package
setup.hint or the setup.ini entry.
Cygwin obsolete packages are most similar to other distros virtual packages, but
they can require specific dependencies and/or versions be installed: this avoids
updating dependencies and docs just because dependency package names change.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
