Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-131) ./configure should check for crypto / OpenSSL availability in Erlant

./configure should check for crypto / OpenSSL availability in Erlant

                 Key: COUCHDB-131
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Build System
    Affects Versions: 0.9
            Reporter: Jan Lehnardt
            Priority: Minor

CouchDB relies on OpenSSL (through Erlang's crypto module) to generate UUIDs. Erlang can be
configured to not include crypto. CouchDB dies a horrible (read: cryptic error message) death.
./configure could check for the availability of crypto in the Erlang installation.

This could also be solved by bundling a standalone UUID generation library. According to Damien,
this is the mid-term solution.
