Are there other packages that are doing similar things?
And unrelated to the problem in this bug:
Now that there is a proper header, it should be used in GridSite?

This is the build-dependency side.
But this would still allow installing GridSite and Apache compiled with
different OpenSSL versions.
Creating a dependency on apache-abi-openssl-1-0-2 for every user of the
affected symbols and providing that (similar to qtbase-abi-5-6-1) would
be the proper solution.
