Committed as r1154683 (drop SSL-C support), r1154687 (remove
ssl_toolkit_compat layer), and r1154688 (require OpenSSL 0.9.7).

Right now, configure no longer warns about specific older OpenSSL
versions - it just checks for OPENSSL_VERSION_NUMBER >= 0x0090700f.
Keeping track of vulnerable versions would possibly require frequent
updates to acinclude.m4 (also in 2.2.x, of course), and second, I'm not
sure how many people really have a close look at the configure output.

NetWare folks: please note that I didn't touch modules/ssl/NWGNUmakefile
so far - i.e. it still allows building with the "Novell NTLS SDK" (in
theory, at least). As I'm neither familiar with the NetWare platform nor
do I have a test environment, I'd appreciate if the experts could have a
look - and patch, if needed. Thanks!
