The support is actually in the runtime linker. libssl is compiled multiple times with CPU-optimized versions installed into subdirectories of /usr/lib indicating the CPU type. While doing runtime linking ld.so looks first in the CPU-specific subdirectories. This only works if the ABIs of the libraries are interchangable. -- "You grabbed my hand and we fell into it, like a daydream - or a fever."
