Following libpkg-guide will avoid future similar problems.
To work around libssl problem, you can certainly use
You could also take an approach of pulling out libssl-dev,
and making packages to Build-Depend on libssl0.9.7-dev libssl0.9.6-dev
explicitly, and starting to rebuild packages against them.
That way, within Debian, it is not possible to build a package
that is simultaneously linked against libssl0.9.6 and libssl0.9.7.
That is what libpkg-guide documents.
