Hmm?  I thought it was the other way around, that you had to configure
with explicit use of OpenSSL, and the default being to use the bundled
copy of libdes...  Has that changed?

I think that's a bad solution, because then you're explicitely asking
for a mix of the two des.h, with the consequences that has.

Not the files, but the macros in them that are protecting them from
duplicate inclusion.
