 Great :-(

 I'm adding a few qt5 users in Cc for this discussion.

 So, IIUC, this is a runtime issue: the needed functions from openssl can't be
found while (dlopen()?) loading the libressl library [1].

 And upstream qt5 project explicitly says that they will not accept patches to
add libressl support [2].

 If this is really the case, then I propose to drop libressl support entirely
for QT5_LATEST. For 5.6 we do need libressl because it is in fact the only one
that works (but then the question is whether it actually *does* work, of course).

 So, I propose that the OPENSSL conditions in qt5base are changed into
LIBOPENSSL. Can someone write a patch for that?
