I noticed that when I build --with-ssl wireshark cannot read any file.

If I compile without it works OK.

We had a "similar" report on Solaris where WS crashed when reading the
DTDs as soon as the reporter build it --without-ssl it worked.

I did not further dig into the issue.


My question is what is OpenSSL used for?
Can we replace it with GnuTLS?
What needs to be modified to drop this dep?
Does someone else wants to help me in getting rid of OpenSSL?
Net-SNMP seems to need it.  If I configure --with-net-snmp but without 
SSL, 'configure' says:
configure: error: Net-SNMP requires openssl but ssl not enabled
Personally I don't use either, but I've seen questions on the lists that 
seem to imply people do use the SNMP stuff.
