I've seen this if you have multiple OpenSSL versions installed and somehow
both libraries get linked in at once.  This commonly happens if you have
program X linked against openssl 0.9.6 and load shared library Y linked
against 0.9.7.

Use ldd to inspect your httpd and php modules and try to find the
offending openssl library. Perhaps you installed OpenSSL as a port at one
