I'm not an autoconf expert, but as said in the original mail, I could
get the SSL_library_init check to work, even if that's a macro now:

> -      AC_CHECK_LIB(ssl,    SSL_library_init, [], [AC_MSG_ERROR([library 
> 'ssl' is required for OpenSSL])])
> +      AC_CHECK_LIB([ssl],  [SSL_library_init])

(I haven't investigated if that's due to the quoting, the removal of
the extra arguments, or simply because I reran autoreconf.)

Nod, I was also disappointed when browsing the API changes document,
given it didn't mention any of the problems I was seeing.
