That looks like it will work - thanks! Missed that in searching.

(And, p.s. still exists in 3.1.0).

Consider using the shlib_variant key for a target.  This is defined in 
Configurations/README, at least for 1.1.1.  It's not exactly what
looking for since you state you would like to add a unique string
the 'ssl' and 'crypto' in the library name.  This will add your unique 
string as a suffix to the name.  For us, we add a '-tk' to indicate
this build of OpenSSL is part of our FIPS toolkit.
