there's in fact no problem because finally you have to define a path to OpenSSL, otherwise
mod_ssl will not be build;
and that conforms to what you said above with 'creation of a srclib/openssl tree':

# If WITH_MOD_SSL and OSSLSDK have been defined then build the mod_ssl module
ifneq "$(OSSLSDK)" ""
SUBDIRS += ssl \

So in fact I introduced a manually switch where we did before unconditional build.
