Assuming you are in the US, that is not true. These restrictions have
been dropped several years ago. Except for some banned countries.

I doubt that. rc2 is not different from the other ciphers.

Yhjis is CAST5. There might be a bug in the configure code. Check

Best would be to
grep USE_ config.h
to see what features are actually included.
