Change the /usr/lib/libssl.so symlink to point to libssl.so.1.1,
not libssl.so.1.0 while compiling with OpenSSL 1.1.x headers.

Ditto for libcrypto.so.

Alternatively, place such symlinks in the lib directory that is
next to the include directory with OpenSSL 1.1.x headers.

This should cause the resulting programs to refer to the right
so-name (libssl.so.1.1 etc.) and thus either load the right
library generation (1.1.x) or report that it isn't installed on
the local library path (typically, /lib/, /usr/lib/ and
/usr/local/lib/ in some system dependent order).

After all, this is the whole point of the versioned .so file names.
