That is incorrect.  The FSF has granted OpenSSL license exceptions to
some software that links to OpenSSL.  For example, GNU wget.

Exactly what FSF code are you using?  It couldn't hurt to ask them.  If
it is general purpose code, I suspect they won't give it, but if it is
network or even TLS related, there could be a chance.
