Install WvStreams by running the following commands:
patch -Np1 -i ../wvstreams-3.70-wvcrypto.patch && patch -Np1 -i ../wvstreams-3.70-wvresolver.patch && make PREFIX=/usr LDFLAGS="-lcrypt" && make PREFIX=/usr install
make PREFIX=/usr LDFLAGS="-lcrypt": This fixes libwvstreams' issues with OpenSSL's crypto library.
As with most libraries, there is no configuration to do, save that the library directory i.e., /opt/lib or /usr/local/lib should appear in /etc/ld.so.conf so that ldd can find the shared libraries. After checking that this is the case, /sbin/ldconfig should be run while logged in as root.
The WvStreams package contains the libwvcrypto, libwvstreams and libwvutils libraries.
