 At some point, we'll just have to let an autobuilder detect the issues. Some
issues anyway only become apparent at link time, so when building a dependency
of a dependency...

 We have an autobuilder running on an openssl-bump branch and Patrick is fixing
the issues that come out. But at some point we'll need to just bite the bullet
and accept the whole thing.

 I do hope that it could still go into 2019.02.
