Yes, the functionality of the Net::SMTP::SSL perl module has been rolled
into Net::SMTP.  However, git upstream are apparently reluctant to patch
the one included perl script that is affected because they don't want to
break compatibility with some Linux distribution that has not updated
their perl modules for several years.

There are patches floating about to fix that one script in git -- not
sure whats happening with regard to getting those committed to the ports
tree.  Even if those patches don't get committed, the lifetime of
p5-Net-SMTP-SSL would be extended instead: the git port is too simply
important to be allowed to be broken.

So, for the time being, sit tight and wait for developments.

	Cheers,

	Matthew
