    I would use a combination out of nm(1) and grep(1) instead of
    fgrep(1). But I do not now right now, which symbol will always be
    contained in a statically linked executable that might use
    OpenSSL...

    Btw: Why should the string "OpenSSL" be contained in each and
    every executable, that might use OpenSSL?
