I've been working a bit at converting openssl to use auto tools for
the build process and since I want to avoid touching source code as
much as possible I had to find a way to set up links between header
files in the source directories and $(top_srcdir)/include/openssl
before building anything. Since I currently have to use automake 1.4 I
couldn't really use BUILT_SOURCES (would have been nice). In the end I
solved it by adding a makefile that does the linking in
include/openssl and putting that directory before anything else in the
toplevel makefile.
