Bug reported here....
Needs applying for app-admin/apache-tools-2.4.3.
there's two patches, and it's a matter for maintainers here
@pva: your call, any feelings about this?
Changing as 2.4.4 has the fix, so it's just a matter of checking the USE flag "static-libs" and defining --enable-ssl-staticlib-deps
Looks like static-libs are not present in any current 2.4 ebuild
