Crypt-OpenSSL-RSA broken under perl 5.14, consequently DKIM checks in SpamAssassin

Now that perl 5.14.0 is gaining traction (appeared in FreeBSD ports and
elsewhere), I'd like to point out that a module Crypt-OpenSSL-RSA 0.26
is still not fixed and an old bug now results in Mail::DKIM failing,
consequently DKIM checks in SpamAssassin and in amavisd fail.

The fix is rather trivial:
