True, although this just sets the correct filename for the library. It
doesn't help get the include path right.

My current approach is to try to get suitable "lib" entries in my
site-config.jam for ssl and crypto. From the Boost.Build docs, it
seems like there's a way to define a lib entry so that projects using
the lib will automatically inherit the proper include paths, library
paths, and library file names. Haven't quite got it right yet though.
Here are my site-config.jam entries:

lib ssl
  : # sources
  : # requirements
  : # default-build
  : # usage-requiremnets

lib crypto

Still hacking on this trying to get it right...
