This may or may not help you, but one possibility is to build an RPM
that states a dependency on the RPM(s) that contain libcrypto and
libssl. Or rather, I think you can state a dependency on those
versions of the library. Then, when customers try to load the new Git
RPM, it requires them to load the dependencies. This assumes that the
customers actually have the dependency RPMs to load.
If you can't expect the customers to have the dependency RPMs, all you
can do is build a special version that doesn't contain the commands
(or whatever) that needs the dependencies.
