Re: email package dependency (openssl) not automatically installed

Hello folks,

I installed a fresh Cygwin 1.7 beta, and added the 'email' package.
Then, I ran the following to send myself a test message:

$ echo "Test message" | email --subject="Test" \
--smtp-server="" --from-name="Steven Monai" \
/usr/bin/email.exe: error while loading shared libraries:
cygssl-0.9.8.dll: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Whoops. Is there something wrong with 'openssl'?

$ cygcheck -c email openssl
Cygwin Package Information
Package              Version        Status
email                3.1.2-2        OK

No 'openssl'. So 'email' was installed, but at least one of its
dependencies wasn't. Could this be an 'email' packaging bug?

Anyway, after installing 'openssl', 'email' works just fine.

It certainly involves your openssl pacakge: $ cyg-apt find cygssl-0.9.8.dll openssl: /usr/bin/cygssl-0.9.8.dll

But it's not a packaging problem:
$ cyg-apt requires email
base-cygwin base-passwd ... openssl ...

I cannot say why openssl wasn't present after installing email.
