I've documented the reason for that at least in

dnl Enable use of libcrypto if available.
dnl Note we could do this as follows:
dnl   AS_VAR_SET_IF([with_openssl], [], [with_openssl=optional])
dnl However that would not document the coreutils adjusted default,
dnl so we add another --with-openssl description just to document that

It's the best I could come up with for now,
and I don't think it's too bad?

To fix elegantly may need improvements to AC_ARG_WITH.
