I used to have this kind of stuff in the configure script - but I
removed it.  I don't want to help RSA Inc. to promote their stuff and
RSA has a lot of problems it is simply not the best algorithm anymore.

Please create a DSA and ElGamal key - they are much nicer and we can
get rid of the RSA stuff - please.
