Linking against OpenSSL


I intend to package a GPL'ed program that requires openssl. I've
searched the archives and would like to hear if I understood

If you want to package a GPL'ed program that links against OpenSSL and
distribute it in debian, the upstream author has to permit that, like in
the fetchmail-ssl package.

What about the packages that don't mention such a permission in the
copyright file (I think lynx-ssl and links-ssl are examples), are they
"illegal"? Or does software in non-US don't have this restriction?
