Upon a closer look, it is not clear to me why you require OpenSSL 1.0+
for OpenMP.  We needed to do this for SSH keys because the specific
OpenSSL interfaces you were using were not thread-safe in older versions
of OpenSSL, but you do not appear to be using any such interfaces here.

I think we should try removing those checks and testing the code with
OpenMP on OpenSSL 0.9.7.  I think it'll work just fine.

Thanks,

Alexander
