crypto and ssl modules under OSX

If you link using gcc, -lbundle1.o must NOT be present
because ggc automatically links bundle1.o and it gets
linked TWICE (and causes a duplicate symbol error).

If you link using ld, -lbundle1.o MUST be present.

The crypto Makefile was wrong. It explicitly linked
using gcc, but it still included the other DED variables,
so the -lbundle1.o flag was included too. Clearly wrong.

Now the crypto Makefile links using @DED_LD@ (which is
currently set to 'ld') and it works.


The next step, to change DED_LD to gcc for Mac OS X and remove
the -lbundle1.o flag is easy and should work, PROVIDED that all
Makefiles in all applications that link dynamic drivers are
correct (in particular, they should not use any explicit options
that only work in either the compiler or linker). I am not sure
they are correct. Yet.
