The NetBuildinstall Foundation
On update from the openssl11 era to the openssl3 era, updates builds often lead to linked against

This is a consistent problem that many people have hit.  We discussed this on IRC but I forget the details.  Probably crypto/external/bsd/openssl/lib needs the build_install treatment -- either lib/Makefile needs to list each openssl library directly, or we need a way to use in crypto/external/bsd/openssl/lib/Makefile, so that the installed symlink is definitely updated before can be linked.

Incidence of this particular manifestation of the problem will likely diminish as people update their trees to openssl3 and nuke the objdirs to get clean builds, but the underlying problem will likely remain and waste hours of debugging silly problems like when we next have
>How-To-Repeat: with openssl11 -u with openssl3
Yes, please!
