Are you sure?
People were running around GPL is not compatible with 
openssl license; and LGPL has a option to make the 
code GPL.

Note that it's:
libssl = GPL
libcrypto = openssl license

I'd ask upstream to use libgcrypt; gcrypt release engineering
is not my favorite, since they seem to change SONAME
quite often, but at least it's under GPL; 
and everythingg libssl needs is there.
