You mean, with your proposed documentation patch?  (if you meant my
proposed advice, then ignore the following paragraph)

Not only does it not suggest the problem, it actually misinforms
you...it suggests you call PQinitSSL(0) when "your application
initializes <literal>libssl</> or  <literal>libcrypto</> libraries".
The operative word being 'or'.  If you follow the advice after only
having initialized the libcrypto library, you would get a failure
trying to use libpq/SSL.
