That depends on:

a) Wether the cmake version that KDE requires (not sure which that is right
now) already shipped it
b) wether our FindOpenSSL.cmake has any differences that we need for some
reason or another

So someone would have to look at the two files and compare them properly
to decide and then we could remove our copy in the next kde release
(provided that a) is fulfilled).

You'll wish that you had done some of the hard things when they were easier
to do.
