Ah, now I understand.  FreeBSD Update is a shell script, so I'd still need
to add an rsa-verify program into /usr/sbin, but I'm quite happy to have
it statically link my RSA code rather than installing a separate library,
if that's what people would prefer.  Honestly, I thought that people would
complain if I did it that way.
