So I've added compat-openssl10-devel subpackage to the compat-openssl10 
package. Please use it only in case all of these three conditions are

1. port of your dependent package is not straightforward
2. upstream does not work on the port
3. you are not able to port it yourself

Please also in that case fill a bug against your package and make it
block the FTBFS with OpenSSL1.1.0 tracker bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.

If the port should be straightforward (i.e. the package does not
contain language bindings for OpenSSL, it is not an OpenSSL engine, and
it is not using OpenSSL internals deeply) but you do not have time to
work on it, please also fill the FTBFS bug and add me to CC so I can
work on the patch.
