It's quick and easy to bump to any version, but you also have to check
that other apps that use an updated library (ssl in that case, see
*/*/*.mk) work fine. It is possible that updating a lib alone is not
sufficient but implies that some apps that use it have to be updated
too (and tested, of course).
