I would love for this to be OK, but I'm skeptical that it is. Both the
BSD and AL licenses explicitly state that you must include license and
attribution when redistributing ("in Source or Object form").

But you aren't actually shipping OpenSSL (in source or binary) are you?
mod_ssl is only linked against OpenSSL?
