Unfortunately with Emacs this causes "configure --help" to output
two disagreeing lines for --with-openssl; one incorrect
one, put out by the AC_ARG_WITH in m4/gl-openssl.m4,
and one correct one, put out by the above call.

Come to think of it, the GNU coding standards say that
--with-openssl should configure the system to use the
OpenSSL library (and fail if it's not available, presumably;
that's what gl_GC and gl_LIBSELINUX do), but the recently-added
code doesn't do that; it issues a warning and disables the
library instead.  Maybe we should be more consistent with
the rest of Gnulib here?
