ceph-devel does not seem to come with a pkgconfig file, and the LIBRBD_LIBS
line Cole quoted comes from libvirt's own configure.ac. I've checked with
ldd that nor librbd nor librados link with libcrypto.

If libcrypto is needed for rbd support, then libvirt should check itself
that libcrypto is present.  All of this would indeed be much simpler if
ceph shipped a pkgconfig file...
