To use this package you need to set PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/openssl-
1.0/pkgconfig. If your package doesn't use PKG_CONFIG_PATH to look for
openssl you'll have to manually add -I/usr/include/openssl-1.0 to
CFLAGS and -L/usr/lib/openssl-1.0 to LDFLAGS.

Also, make sure that your resulting package uses the correct library.
You don't want to link to two different versions of OpenSSL. An example
 where this happens is ptlib/opal, Opal will happily compile against
OpenSSL 1.1 while ptlib is compiled against 1.0 if no changes are made
to opal.
