Accepted and committed as-is.
Works fine for me before and after: I wonder why -lssl was added: for what I could check all connection and cryptography is inside Pantomime.
LIBRARIES_DEPEND_UPON change accepted too, since correctly it is applied to the Framework and not GNUMail app!

GNUMail links with OpenSSL which is not only completely unnecessary but also makes the package undistributable.  Attached is a trivial patch that just removes the ssl libs and also fixes the build with ld --no-undefined by using the right variable and adding the missing libraries.
