You mean for unixes?
The solution would be to create stub and
so that libtcnative don't carry their SONAME and link to system so.x...

Static linkage is not a good idea I'm afraid.

Right. Having stubs, libtcnative will always link to which
is usually symlink on any system.
At runtime we can check for SSL_version and fail in case it has wrong ABI.

However, not sure why you wish to do that. Many distros already provide
tomcat-native so there's no real point for doing that, especially since
we should not distribute unix binaries.
