Debian has additional issues due to library conflicts (themselves due to
incredibly frustrating licensing nonsense) that aren't nss_ldap's fault
but which using nss_ldap will trigger because that loads the conflicting
library. These issues are Debian-specific since other distributions, so
far as I can tell, just ignore the OpenSSL/GPL license conflict.
