No question about that -- it is what I said in the commitlog when I
created that macro.  The point is that we have to get Ben Laurie to
check if the macro is sufficient for mod_tls, as it was specifically
written for the very latest version of openssl (I do not know why
mod_ssl depends on that version) and I only tested it with mod_ssl.

I would prefer a real autoconf macro that actually checks for the
feature needed by our use of SSL.
