Not really a suggestion of a way to go, just another anecdotal data point...

Solaris 10 3/05 does it this way:
system      SUNWopenssl-commands             OpenSSL Commands (Usr)
system      SUNWopenssl-include              OpenSSL Header Files
system      SUNWopenssl-libraries            OpenSSL Libraries (Usr)
system      SUNWopenssl-man                  OpenSSL Manual Pages
system      SUNWopensslr                     OpenSSL (Root)

This is probably even more confusing to Trygve than the current blastwave way.
