The OPENSSL_VERSION_NUMBER is a compile time thing. There likely is some way to get the version of the runtime instance also. This WOULD be a good check, if they do not match, list this as a warning. Even though this would be a run-time check, I think it would be beneficial to have the run-time version listed on the -list=build-info, IF that version did not match what this image was built with.
