Based on my understanding from this help text, I think we should rename
those options to something like

  --with-neon-openssl
  --with-serf-openssl

and deprecate the old names

  --with-openssl
  --with-ssl

Did I get them the right way around? Ah, no - other way around. That's
my point, you see :-)

Makes sense?
