division of code into libraries - openssl dependancy

Currently, there is:
Useful uses of liblwdns requires libdns and libisc. libdns contains dst_*,
which requires openssl. This makes programs that aren't doing any crypto at
all depend upon openssl. Reducing dependancies on things that maybe either
export/import controlled, or... buggy!... would be good.
This is, for static linking, not a problem, since if the program doesn't use
the crypto, it doesn't pull dst_* in. For dynamic linking, ironically, the
program winds up bigger...
I would like to propose that the dnssec functions be moved out of libdns,
into libdnssec, perhaps.
