If you unset those variables do the binaries stop working?

If you were using either the system's libcrypto or linking against a 
static libcrypto (the latter being the default for at least OpenSSL 
0.9.7g and below) then the run-time linker path is not going to be an issue.

BTW uses "locate" when available because it's much faster 
than "find".

     Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
