Are you sure that's not a problem with some C that the Perl OpenSSL is
trying to use? It certainly looks more like a C problem than a Perl one.
At that point I run out of ideas because my Perl is rather weak.

If I was in your shoes, I'd have followed Axb's approach and forced a
complete package upgrade following by installing the extra Perl modules
from the SUSE package library. I use Fedora and in my case the upgrade
command would be "yum distro-sync full". I used it earlier this week to
sort out a package version clash that was stopping routine updates from
happening. 

If I have Perl problems I only use CPAN after I'm absolutely sure that
the modules I need aren't in the distro repository: I trust yum's
dependency checking rather more than that of CPAN.
