Just a thought: was the openssl static libraries built
with -ffunction-sections?

If not, then that may be why the openssh static binaries where so big
and so I think that -ffunction-sections should be mandatory for
packagers, unless the libraries sources is one-function-per-file
structured (which achieves the same thing).
