Most packages (including the base package) already force you to do
license-related things when you distribute binaries:
- Redistributions in binary form must reproduce the above copyright notice,
this list of conditions and the following disclaimer in the documentation
and/or other materials provided with the distribution.
The OpenSSL license is no worse in this respect.
