OpenSSH 2.1.0 won't build without rc5 and idea

OK, I've hacked configure so that it simply checks that it can link
with openssl.  Now, when I run make, it dies on authfile.c while
trying to include the non-existent headers openssl/rc5.h and
openssl/idea.h.  I built my installation of openssl without those
algorithms in order to avoid commercial licensing issues.

The following diff band-aids the problem, but I think it's down-stream
of the proper fix.  This configure stuff is cool when it works, but
way too complex for my limited brainpower when it doesn't.  :-)

thumper% rcsdiff -r1.1 -r1.2 config.h
RCS file: RCS/config.h,v
retrieving revision 1.1
retrieving revision 1.2
diff -r1.1 -r1.2
> /* Define if you have excluded some crypto algorithms from your openssl
>    installation */

I still need to test the version I just compiled.  Since I haven't
seen any reports of this particular problem, I guess I'm in 
uncharted territory.  I'll have more to report later today or next
