FWIW, Debian stretch has openssl 1.1.0, so I guess they had to adapt lots
of packages.

The debian package uses `-DWITH_SSL=bundled` [1] to avoid linking with the
system-wide openssl.  Not a great solution, though.

Can't you just drop the dependency on openssl?  What is it used for?
As far as I can tell, Debian does not build mupdf against openssl:

root at stretch:~# apt show mupdf
Package: mupdf
Version: 1.9a+ds1-4
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.15), libfreetype6 (>= 2.6), libharfbuzz0b (>= 0.9.11), libjbig2dec0 (>= 0.11), libjpeg62-turbo (>= 1.3.1), libopenjp2-7 (>= 2.0.0), libx11-6, libxext6, zlib1g (>= 1:1.2.0)
root at stretch:~# ldd /usr/lib/mupdf/mupdf-x11 | grep ssl
root at stretch:~# ldd /usr/lib/mupdf/mupdf-x11 | grep crypto
root at stretch:~#

I just tested building the package without openssl support (I had to patch
out references to openssl and libcrypto from Makerules, since openssl is
part of the base chroot when building), and it seems to work fine.
