as recently pointed out on debian-devel [1], the netatalk package
is accidently linked against libssl on some arches due to dirty
buildd chroots. To avoid this license violation, explicit
Build-Conflicts against libssl-dev should be added and only be
removed if $DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS contains "openssl".

...or netatalk build routines tightened to not link against openssl even if available, I assume.

The latter is definitely preferred since DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS can't change the value of Build-Conflicts...

True. Other (more complex) mechanisms like using a debian/control.in.in file is possible, however.

Unfortunately I already set --without-openssl-dir which apparently had no effect. I will try setting --with-openssl-dir=/dev/null :-/

Ahh, problem isolated: The proper option to use is --with-openssl-dir=no - so the convenient DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=openssl will be preserved :-)
