Yes, you were mistaken.

It's not really a good idea for your package configure script, or whatever, to 
go sniffing around the build environment and turn features on or off depending 
what it finds; this is always going to be fragile.  The buildds don't make any 
particular promises about the contents of the chroot, except that they will 
satisfy whatever build-depends and build-conflicts you have declared.

Is it necessary to do both?  If "--with-openssl=no" suffices to prevent your 
package from actually using SSL, adding a Build-Conflict will just create a 
nuisance for people trying to compile the thing.
