Stuff that is not distributable cannot be included in contrib/non-free.
Ways it could enter Debian include:
Upstream adds the OpenSSL exception to their license grant and
releases a new version.
Someone ports it to an SSL library that has a license that is
compatible with the ossec license (such as GnuTLS).
Some kind of ossec-src style package that builds contains a copy of
the source code in the .deb and builds ossec during the installation
of the .deb. This is likely to be rejected by the ftpmasters though.
Until one of these happens it cannot be distributed by Debian.
