It is less a problem and more intentional.
Versioned deps are
definitely a tricky subject.
I haven't tried it out yet, but shouldn't a new pacman, compiled with
the right ldflags, no longer link directly against openssl? The reason
that is in there is only because of the libraries it uses; we don't
use ssl methods directly in pacman code. Of course if we are
explicitly telling it to link, then we would still have a problem.
That is what it looks like after pulling down your rebuild; but I'm
confused- it shows it still looking for openssl 0.9.8:
