Something along those lines can help narrow down the search field
especially because both Pat and SBo strip symbols (I think SBo scripts
generally 'strip --strip-unneeded', right?). Otherwise something like
this would have been possible:

$ objdump -t <FILENAME> | grep SSL_library_init

After identifying candidates, we can worry about whether the bundled
or statically-linked OpenSSLs are vulnerable or not.
