The /dev/crypto testing program in FreeBSD, like in NetBSD, was
derived from a test program which I never published with a free
license.  It has now been deleted from the NetBSD tree as well.

Please delete it from the FreeBSD tree as well.

Because apparently Sam is too busy to keep your tree clear of
license violations.

I'm busy for the next few months doing non-FreeBSD work.  I'll deal with your 
complaint when I have the time.  If this is unsatisfactory feel free to 
contact someone else.
