If you have for example an embedded system that "just" needs x based
visualisation (machine control terminal for example), you may not need
crypto; in fact, these boxes often don't even have network support at
all. OpenSSL is something like 2 MB footprint, which is quite something
if you have only 16 or 32 MB flash instead of a harddisk.
So being able to work without it is good.
