If you look in kdelibs/kio/kssl/kopenssl.cc, the initialization of 
OpenSSL is done by explicitly attempting to load symbols via 
KLibrary::symbol (const char*name) (in 
kdelibs/kdecore/klibloader.cpp). Some of these symbols, as you 
mention, belong to OpenSSL 0.9.6, but it looks like they dont' exist 
in OpenSSL 0.9.7 (i have not built KDE against OpenSSL 0.9.7, so i am 
not really knowledgeable in what the problems with this version of 
OpenSSL may be). The errors you see on tty are the errors reported by 
KLibrary::symbol() and dlerror(3DL) when libdl.so tries to dlsym(3DL) 
something and it returns NULL because it can't find the symbol.
