That tells you whether the program is static or dynamic but it doesn't
tell you if it used one of the openssl libraries. I think you are going
to have to read a number of Makefiles to figure that out. A clever
script person could automate it with find and exec but the quantity of
information that you would still have to look at could be huge. Would
it be worth the effort.
I can rebuild my userland and kernel and be running it in around 30
minutes. You can't lookup very many programs, build the static ones
that use openssl, and install them in that amount of time.
