Something like the following will make your OpenSSL build directory
behave like an installation directory to httpd's configure:

  cd /wherever/the/compiled/openssl/sources/are
  mkdir -p lib/pkgconfig
  echo prefix=`pwd` > lib/pkgconfig/openssl.pc
  tail +2 openssl.pc >> lib/pkgconfig/openssl.pc
  cd lib
  for l in ../*.a ../*.so*; do ln -s $l; done

(by omitting the symlinks for *.so*, it's possible to force the static
versions of libcrypto and libssl being used for mod_ssl)

Proposed for 2.4 in r1387613.
