It wasn't the switch in hpoj from 0.8 to CVS which caused libcrypto to start 
getting linked in rather it was a change in the Debian supplied libsnmp:

ucd-snmp (4.2.4-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream version.
  * Rebuilt with SSL since cryto can now go in main.
  * Explicitly use bash for the fixman script (closes:133652).
  * Don't use LD_RUN_PATH in perl/SNMP.so.
  * Fixed parsing of "-p udp:" in snmpd (closes:141176).

This change in the snmp package isn't included in the woody (testing) release, 
thus all (most) the packages in woody such as hpoj which depend on libsnmp 
don't link in libcrypto.

The new sid (unstable) release snmp package has been rebuilt with SSL as shown 
above thus packages which depend on libsnmp also end up with the libcrypto
