mod_ssl is a special case, requiring external libraries.  There may be an
ELFism there, but I could've sworn I tested that on Alpha many moons ago.

Because the shared objects may be confusing ld.elf_so, Apache, or both,
depending on how they're dlopen()ed.

: There's already a similar PR on that (#8905).

Sigh, I'll look at this sometime, in my ant's-mound of Stuff To Do.
