I just noticed that this is not enough.  It does fix the
NO_OPENSSL problem, but I think the logic and test for ssl and
crypto in the original are the other way around.

NEEDS_SSL_WITH_CRYPTO means you cannot just say "-lcrypto" to
use SHA1 stuff, but need to say "-lcrypto -lssl", so the test
should say "if we can get away with -lcrypto, we are happy,
otherwise if we need -lssl, then say NEEDS_SSL_WITH_CRYPTO,
otherwise we cannot use OpenSSL so say NO_OPENSSL", or something
like that.
