Comment(by bagder):

 datallah: yes it can legally and license-wise be linked against OpenSSL.
 The licenses that collide (OpenSSL + GPL) only limits what is allowed to
 get distributed so usage and linking is not prohibited in any way, only

 mback2k: a generic backend could of course easily be made to disable a
 specific library, but most likely it would simply mean that people who
 build binaries out of a GPL licensed program would simply not select to
 build a backend that involves a non-GPL compliance license.
