If OpenSSL is included in your distribution (it is with OS X), then  
the rules change a bit, as (or so I understand it) the GPL explicitly  
provides an exception for linking against libraries which ship with  
the distribution regardless of their original license.

FYI, has the patch which  
Adium's build of libpurple uses to utilize openssl.
