	well, that would work, but it would be a little weird since there
isn't a lib{ssl,crypto}.so being installed.  The .a's are already listed in
the common plist so listing them in PLIST.aix is redundant.
	actually, looking closer I realize that since openssl doesn't use libtool
the libraries don't get linked correctly to be dynamically loaded.  argh!
Yet another thing to fix.  But that means that omitting the .so's from the
PLIST to indicate that shared libraries aren't installed is sort of correct! :)
