I do no know this for sure, just guessing, trying to find something that works 
I'm trying to avoid having to reverse engineer this, it seems very unlikely 
what I'm trying to do has never been done before.

If it hasn't been attempted, my guess would be that it's not a good idea for 
some reason, but if that's true I'd like to know why.

Nothing with tls is building, I've also tried
but the results are exactly the same.

That would technically work, but that would defeat the purpose of using a 
standard debian build, since it's unlikely .deb  packages would work reliably 
on that system without rebuilding them.

Perhaps I need to be digging through the debian packages myself for this 
utility instead of just trying to build it myself directly.
I'll do a little research.
