I'm guessing this has to do with your "minimal

The program that won't make is for the blowfish(3)
encryption algorithm.  You probably didn't get
the /crypto distribution in your minimal install,
and you've not cvsup'ed the entire /src tree and
done "make buildworld", yet, or so I'm guessing.

Doesn't seem likely that just grabbing /sys is
gonna be enough ... but I'm newb enough that
all I can offer is opinions....
