It isn't.  This is an historical issue that we've contended with on Win32...
I've always blocked the LoadModule in that condition.

Especially with all the linkages, if mod_ssl is an so, you have the massive
overhead of resolving all the libssl/libeay sorts of symbols just to load
a module that's never used.  That is brokenness.

+1 on Madhu's solution.
