It's easy enough to install openssl from source with an existing
install.  I'd suggest putting the package in either /usr/local or
/opt.  When you run configure, make sure you call it with something

./configure --prefix=/usr/local

That way, when you run "make install", it'll put the libraries and
binaries in /usr/local/lib and /usr/local/bin.  Obviously, if you want
to install it in /opt, you'd change "/usr/local" to "/opt" in the
above.  You'll probably need to tell apache where the alternate
version of openssl is, though.  I assume there'll be a configure
option something like "--openssldir", but I've never built apache, so
I don't actually know.

One thing you don't want to do is try to install it over the Debian
version -- that will kill courier-imap-ssl and screw up the package
management system.
