It's the standard location when you install from sources. And
only now Linux distributions include OpenSSL.

I thought placing anything in /usr/local was against the FHS.
A Linux distribution shouldn't place any files in /usr/local
, or am I mistaken ?

Slackware uses /usr/bin , /usr/lib , /usr/include , /usr/man
, and /etc/ssl for OpenSSL, but I don't use their packages -
my install is in /usr/local/ssl

I noticed the following in Links

for ssldir in "" /usr /usr/local/openssl /usr/lib/openssl
/usr/local/ssl /usr/local/www /usr/lib/ssl /usr/local
/usr/pkg /opt /opt/openssl; do

But there are no other SSL configure options, only
--without-ssl .
