It appears that all do.  That makes sense since Windows doesn't have it,
and on Linux you don't know what version will be present on the host
where the binaries are installed (and the OpenSSL ABI changes between
major release versions).

The FreeBSD port uses the system OpenSSL.  It passes
--with-system-openssl to configure.  This works for FreeBSD because
different binary packages are generated for each FreeBSD major version,
and within a FreeBSD major version the OpenSSL ABI does not change.

The lastest OpenSSL should just drop in.  I haven't seen any problems
building on FreeBSD with the latest and greatest.
