Most of them, yes, to be able to test openssl. You would have to check
each one individually to really know.

Perhaps. However, the buildbots can't test all combinations, anyway.
People will report problems in other combinations quickly. Hopefully,
they don't panic when they encounter a bug that only shows up on their
