Subject: jumbo pull request #255 (trouble with static builds)

hi list,

basically the makefile currently links to -lssl -lcrypto unconditionally.
when static linking this leads to duplicate symbols from builtin sources
i.e. MD5_Init, MD4_Init. those are in libcrypto and in jtr source files 
md5.c and md4.c.
both files have checks for HAVE_OPENSSL in them.
so defining these at build time makes them omit their content, i.e. 
empty object files.

thus i've added the CFLAG -DHAVE_OPENSSL unconditionally as well.
this fixes the problem.

this is one of two possible fixes, the alternative is that a proper 
check for an installed openssl is done (or the user can choose) and if 
so add both -DHAVE_OPENSSL to CFLAGS and -lssl -lcrypto to LDFLAGS.
