You keep asking questions that don't have answers because you phrase
them in terms of dynamic linking all the time.

None of these four questions are answerable because the only thing
you've said is that programX is dynamically linked to libssl and that
both these packages contain a libssl file.


As I said the last time you asked this exact same question, it depends
on all the stuff you haven't said. I also sketched out the conditions
for the various possible answers. I'm not going to repeat it again.
