First insight, did you ./config openssl, or ./config shared?  It seems near
impossible to use static openssl.  apr-util configure will fail since
pkgconfig isn't consulted properly.  httpd configure would also likely fail
for redundant symbols.

Second insight - apr-util version 1.5 includes openssl libs.  Once you are
linking against both apr-util and openssl, you can't choose a different
openssl. You will need to build apr-util against the -same- openssl.

Third insight - apr-util links to ldap, as does mod_authnz_ldap.
 libldap/liblber link to openssl.  Again, quite likely the system library.
 So, rebuild the openldap project as well against your newly built openssl.

Or you can configure apr-util --without-ldap and httpd sans

FTR I am betting dollars to donuts you are trying to use a static, not
shared build of openssl.  Please, don't do that :)

p.s interestingly, openssl 1.0.1f make install_docs totally fails at
man1/cms.1 with 'expected text after =item, not a number' under Fedora 20.
 Not that I attempt that arch for anything of substance.
