I don't know those packages, so can't speak intelligently about them 

As to the general question, though:

1) Try rebuilding the packages.  If you're lucky they'll build against 
the new ssl.

2) If not, install the openssl-compatibility package from AUR.  It 
provides openssl 0.9.8.  Repeat step 1.

And of course if you had to resort to step 2, you should probably enter 
a comment on the packages' AUR pages about the problem.
