EventMachine requires OpenSSL? That bumps a bit the complexity of
building the gem...

I would recommend EM team build OpenSSL "statically" so it doesn't
conflict and can be shipped without DLLs.

No. OpenSSL requires a lot of Perl trickery. Check proper-openssl
branch of the repository to see how complicated is get OpenSSL to
build.
