It doesn't need to be all-or-nothing.
To your specific concern about OpenSSL, we can build without it, as
that's a supported configuration, at the cost of disabling various core
modules (and breaking some third-party ones), presumably at least
"crypto" <https://nodejs.org/api/crypto.html>, "https"
<https://nodejs.org/api/https.html>, and "tls"

Indeed, that sounds daunting to me as well.
