The problem is that "-lssl -lcrypto" is apparently added to the command
line when linking liboctave.  There are no occurrences of "lssl" in the
failed octave build directory.  However, I *did* discover that contains:

  dependency_libs=' [...] -lssl -lcrypto -lz'

despite the fact that our 'curl' package was built without OpenSSL.  I
guess this is the root of the problem, and that the bug is in 'curl'.

I'm not sure why this problem does not affect more packages.  Perhaps
most packages in Guix that use 'curl' either don't use libtool or
include OpenSSL as an input.  If they didn't already include OpenSSL, I
guess that maybe people "fixed" the problem by adding OpenSSL as an
input, as was done for Octave.

To be continued...
