Recent US law changes have effected this. As I recall, an exporter must
apply for permission to export software with strong crypto, which is now
readily granted. I also recall that there were some special (relaxed) rules
for open source software, but I could be wrong.

Example: Strong encyption patches for Microsoft products are now readily
availble from Microsoft to non-North American countries.
