The openssl11 packages have to put the static libs and headers in an 
alternate location in order to be parallel-installable with the standard 
package, so you need to specify a header and library path when 
compiling.  However, the *runtime* lib has a different soname, so that 
*is* in the standard search path:


So, you will be able to run the resulting binary without any further 
changes, and there's no risk of breaking packaged software.
