The core issue is that autoconf probe macros like AC_CHECK_LIB() will only
succeed against names that are actual global linker symbols, ie functions,
not C macros.  SSL_library_init() is not in that category as of 1.1.0.

You want to pick one that is an actual function in both older and newer
OpenSSL releases.  Postgres went with SSL_new(); there are doubtless
others that would work.
