Porting issue from evax/kerl#13

If libssl headers are missing in the system, the resulting Erlang build will not include crypto module. Such Erlang build is pretty much useless. For instance, rebar won't be working without crypto.

It would be great if kerl were asking a user whether he wants to continue a build without crypto. A simpler but a still better way of handling this situation would be exiting with an error.

confirmed on centos 6


+1 for crypto application should be included, otherwise exception should be thrown


At least a highly visible end-warning?

We've just merged #148 which should warn about this problem. Please reopen if needed.
