Neat; this looks plausible to me at first glance.

I'm making a PR so that our CI can have a look at it:

It looks to me like this patch might already be getting used in production somewhere; could you tell me more about that, so I can know how it's been tested?

I'm not so good at linking issues, so I'm having a hard time verifying that this behaves differently than our current makefile. Could you walk me through a setup where static linking fails without this patch, but succeeds with it?

(For me, the process fails either way, because autoconf fails to define HAVE_SSL_SESSION_GET_MASTER_KEY.)

We can take this in 0.4.3 if somebody gives me instructions on how to reproduce this.
