[Bug-wget] Wget 1.16.1 detection of non-system openssl broken on MacOSX.

Wget 1.16.1 has broken detection of non-built-in openssl on MacOSX.

Openssl comes with MacOSX but it's deprecated by Apple and it's an old
version.  For this reason, many MacOSX users custom install a newer
openssl and put it in /usr/local/ssl (which, IIRC, is the default
location for custom openssl installs).

Up through wget 1.16, the following configure flags sufficed to make
wget's configure script recognize this custom openssl and *use* it:

./configure --with-ssl=openssl --with-libssl-prefix=/usr/local/ssl

But on wget 1.16.1, those same flags have no effect, and wget is built
against the Mac system openssl in /usr/lib, which is old and deprecated.
Something in the configure script must have changed.

I hope that this is either repaired, or that the README/INSTALL are
amended to include special instructions on how to force wget to pick up
a custom openssl on MacOSX.

I'm no programmer, but I have a hunch that the same batch of pkg-config
related changes (2014-11-01 in the ChangeLog) that broke pcre handling
on MacOSX (See earlier thread) have broken openssl detection.

I do have pkg-config on my system, in /usr/local.  I have found that
whether or not I remove pkg-config from my system, I can't get openssl
in /usr/local/ssl to get picked up and used to link with" lines.
