I really don't think this is RPM's fault.  This is from my (fully 
up-to-date) RH 7.3 system:

/root # rpm -q --whatprovides libcrypto.so.0
no package provides libcrypto.so.0
/root # rpm -q --whatprovides libcrypto.so.1
/root # rpm -q --whatprovides libcrypto.so.2
/root # rpm -q --whatprovides libcrypto.so.3
no package provides libcrypto.so.3

So the versions of libcrypto.so that are provided by the system are .1 
and .2.  .1 is the old version provided for an older version still, and 
.2 is current.  If you built the RPM on Slackware, you can't expect it 
to work, because they don't have the same versions of openssl and 
pilot-link.  RPM is telling you the right thing: you need those versions 
of those libraries, and you don't have them.
