this is an ever re-occuring problem with only one answer: you have to 
recompile all modules that (somehow) depend on openssl. The only 
solution I see for openssl is:

1) bump the module but do not do anything specific after
2) send out an announcement prior with instructions and a code snipplet 
that shows you how to rebuild the required apllications, or otherwise 
use 'lunar fix' to autodetect and rebuild based on broken symlinks 
(ldd_check catches these).

anything other is futile IMO
