Looks like vercmp is linked against openssl (why?). But the initial -Syu
will just update pacamn and not its deps which would also pull in the new
openssl. This means that vercmp is broken until openssl is updated.

Maybe we need to increase the versioned deps of pacman to libarchive and
libfetch to get the new openssl in the first run. But it seem Allan did
revert this for some reason. (maybe because your system is completely
broken if you don't run pacman -Syu twice.

Any suggestions on this? Maybe increasing the versioned deps of pacman + a
news item telling people to don't forget to run -Syu twice?
