Crypto is Now Built by Default

I have reversed the configure flag --enable-crypto to be --disable-crypto, so that crypto is on by default. See bug 272189 for the patch etc.

Since some countries (not in the US) may still have use or export restrictions on cryptology, builders in these countries should be aware of their local laws and be careful to abide by them.

In addition, this change means that Firefox builders no longer need to use browser/config/mozconfig, but can just specify the following options in their mozconfig or on the command line:

mk_add_options MOZ_CO_PROJECT=browser
ac_add_options --enable-application=browser

To build manually, follow this basic pattern:

cvs co mozilla/
cd mozilla
make -f checkout MOZ_CO_PROJECT=browser
cd my_objdir; # this is optional
/path/to/mozilla/configure --enable-application=browser

Please post somments and replies on the newsgroup netscape.public.mozilla.builds. Happy hacking!
