Yeah, I kind of that that was what was happening.

I'm sure of it.

It's listed in the sources file, which would seem to indicate that FC
builds are requiring it. Hmm. On second thought it's in
adhoc/openssl/devel/sources and adhoc/openssl/FC-3/sources. Oh. 

Those big seed tarballs are for FC3. Thanks. I get it.

So, rm -Rf those seeds. I just use my adhoc sandbox. No problem. 

Except, what target would get me actual source in my sandbox?

I need to get a diff with the stock openssl so I can get an idea whether
I would be safe pushing to the very latest openssl so I can get the full
current benefits of the opentsa patch and mod_tsa.
