When used with "-tls", swaks will report " TLS not available: requires Net::SSLeay. Exiting" and likewise when used without -tls will not even attempt to use tls, leading to errors on systems that only allow interaction over TLS.
Therefore it seems reasonable to add


as an optional dependency.

Additional info:
* package version: 20170101.0-1

Steps to reproduce:
* install swaks
* make sure perl-net-ssleay is not installed
* try sending an email over an SMTP-Host only allowing interaction via TLS

(One could argue that with the prevalence of TLS-enabled e-mail-servers perl-net-ssleay should be in the Depends to directly pull it, but technically it is an Optdepends.)
This task depends upon
