The package looks for libcrypto and links it if it's available. The
2.7.3-2 says "checking for LIBCRYPTO... no". 
It's not very interesting to find why it's now installed in the build env
(assuming you build it in a clean env), your build process shouldn't
depend on the build env. If you don't want to link libcrypto, you need to
do that even whern it's installed. Looks like that requires patching
configure.ac though.
