I suppose you could use ctypes to load the library and call SSLeay()
which returns the OpenSSL version number as a C long.
from ctypes import *
libssl = cdll.LoadLibrary("libssl.so")
openssl_version = libssl.SSLeay()
print "%.9X" % openssl_version
This gives me 0009080FF which corresponds to 0.9.8o release which is
what I have installed in Debian Squeeze.
