upgrading to openssl 0.9.7d-1 on redhat 7.3


trying to upgrade to the newest version of openssl as i've built rpms from the openssl tarball. the problem arises from the fact that i've got a lot of programs that depend on the old version of openssl. i don't want to uninstall all these programs, install the newest openssl, and then hunt down on my hard drive all the programs to reinstall them. anyone have any suggestions as to go about this? anyone out there just do a --nodeps and not have anything break? the new version provides: SSL, libcrypto.so.0.9.7, libssl.so.0.9.7, openssl. could i just --nodeps the install and create symlinks to the libraries called libcrypto.so.2 and libssl.so.2? thanks for your time in this matter.

output from rpm -Uvh openssl-0.9.7d-1.i386.rpm:

//Ignore if fixed/changed/whatever else.
i've got a lot of programs that depend on the old version of openssl.
If they're compiled static you have to recompile. OpenSSL usually is backward compatible, but if these apps don't conform to important changes in OpenSSL you should load their new version to take advantage of that.

i don't want to uninstall all these programs, install the newest openssl, and then hunt down on my hard drive all the programs to reinstall them.
Make clear first:
1. In what ways you depend on OpenSSL functionality and if you can afford your approach to backfire,
2. what the *real* reason is you don't want to do regular sysadm work,
3. you understand the additional probs maintaining (RHL 7.x EOL 2003).
One possible solution could be to "yum update" from the Fedora Core Legacy project. Another more structural approach would be to upgrade to CentOS, Tao, RHEL or SuSE if you're looking for an enterprise equivalent, or Fedora Core, cAos, Mandrake, SuSE etc etc in other cases.
