I'm not sure what exact instances Hagbard means, but openssl is for
signing content. From a quick grep, both openssl and nspr (needed for
the plugin) depend on <arpa/inet.h>. So both aren't strictly needed for
the graphics usage, but ripping them out is something else :). Being
able to choose what parts of blender you want built is a goal, and we're
slowly getting there.
