Ok, seems like I underestimated the effect of occasionally having one
or two "not directly needed" DT_NEEDED tags in I was more
concerned about having an additional, clumsy (and hard-to-explain) option
in configure, but here we go:

                          link mod_ssl with dependencies of OpenSSL's static
                          libraries (as indicated by "pkg-config --static").
                          Must be specified in addition to --enable-ssl.

Added in r1429228, 2.4.x backport proposal adapted.
