[openssl-users] Building libcrypto/libssl without symbolic link

Hello OpneSSL Community,

OpenSSL build system currently creates symbolic links to actual binaries and actual binaries are named as *.so.1.0.0 : 

lrw-r--r-- root     root              2015-04-10 02:33 libcrypto.so -> libcrypto.so.1.0.0
-rw-r--r-- root     root      1988088 2015-04-10 02:27 libcrypto.so.1.0.0
lrw-r--r-- root     root              2015-04-10 02:33 libssl.so -> libssl.so.1.0.0
-rw-r--r-- root     root       354824 2015-04-10 02:27 libssl.so.1.0.0

Is there any configure option in OpenSSL build scripts to not generate the symbolic links and rather generate actual binary as libcrypto.so/libssl.so from the build process like following:

-rw-r--r-- root     root      1235987 2013-03-11 08:15 libcrypto.so
-rw-r--r-- root     root       268972 2013-03-11 08:15 libssl.so

If not then is there a simple way to modify OpenSSL build scripts to achieve this?
