It was linked to glibc 2.15, however glibc update itself may cause kernel panic so some people can only stay with glibc 2.14 right now. If they upgrade openssl on a glibc 2.14 system, it won't work.

Error message:
openssl: /lib/ version `GLIBC_2.15' not found (required by openssl)

glibc 2.15-3 issue:

Selective updates are not supported in Arch. Either update everything or you are on your own. This is also not an openssl bug.

Right, but if the new version does require glibc 2.15, how about adding glibc>=2.15? I've upgraded other packages, openssl is the only one that doesn't like glibc 2.14.

glibc is the most common trouble maker so not only a few people put it in ignore package list. It's not entirely "selective updates" but it is not supposed to be a bad idea, otherwise pacman should not have supported this feature, right?

Rebuilding from abs on glibc 2.14 system worked.
