Due to licensing issues, kdelibs dlopens openssl instead of linking. In
order to make this work, kdelibs needs to know the soname of both libcrypto
and libssl. Upstream kdelibs *tries* to use libssl.so.SHLIB_VERSION_NUMBER
(and libcrypto.so.SHLIB_VERSION_NUMBER) as defined by openssl/opensslv.h
header. Unfortunately, this doesn't work, since
SHLIB_VERSION_NUMBER=0.9.8
and the soname in on my box is:
libssl.so.0.9.8g

Is the value of SHLIB_VERSION_NUMBER incorrect on my build?
Is this usage/expection of SHLIB_VERSION_NUMBER to name sonames invalid?
Any suggestions on how to make this work better?
