# As of version 3.2.0, configure will use GnuTLS by default.  It will only
# use OpenSSL if you tell it to via the --with-openssl flag, even if GnuTLS
# is not installed.  If it was installed in the standard source location,
# pass this to configure: --with-openssl=/usr/local/ssl  If GnuTLS is
# installed somewhere where configure can't find it, specify it's prefix
# with --with-libgnutls-prefix=/the/prefix/its/installed/under

# If you ever need to uninstall lftp, this should do it.
# I tried running 'make uninstall' in the source directory with version 3.2.1,
# but that got stuck in a loop and ate up every available file handle bringing
# the load average up to a few hundred, so I ctrl-C'd it :-)  Needless to say,
# either run 'make -n uninstall' first to see what would happen, or just don't
# do it at all.
