For Wget, we're now using OpenSSL. The openssl src code is on GS' SVN for compiling, while we're building the wget binary against OpenSSL's static libraries to produce GS binaries. However, OpenSSL is under a double license, ultimately incompatible with GPL, see  https://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.en.html#OpenSSL. However, we can combine the GPL license of most of GS software with an exception for the OpenSSL part, which we've followed from  https://opensource.stackexchange.com/questions/2233/gpl-v3-with-openssl-exception?rq=1
