At some point, Crypt::SSLeay in the perl-crypt-ssleay package started using Bytes::Random::Secure. It is no longer usable without it.

It looks like packages for this new module were prepared in  FS#45811  but they ended up in the AUR.

Additional info:
* perl-crypt-ssleay 0.73_04-4

Steps to reproduce:

$ perl -MCrypt::SSLeay
Can't locate Bytes/Random/ in @INC (you may need to install the Bytes::Random::Secure module) (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/share/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/core_perl /usr/share/perl5/core_perl .) at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/Crypt/ line 8.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/Crypt/ line 8.
Compilation failed in require.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.
