It's kind of bizzarre.  I grabbed the FC6 jpilot rpm source file, installed
it, and ran rpmbuild on it.  It built the keyrong plugin -- on an FC2 (!) system.

Nonetheless, the plugin is undeniably missing from the FC6 binary rpm.

Given the amateurishness of Fedora packaging, I would guess this is a bug.
They may have built their binary package on a system without the SSL
development libraries, in which case I believe the build simply ignores
the keyring plugin, without issuing errors.

You can (1) open a bug at bugzilla, and (2) grab the source RPM and
build it yourself (making sure you have all the required devel packages
installed first, including openssl).
