Remember that MacOS X includes OpenSSL.  Are you really updating the  
version on OpenSSL supplied by Apple, or are you installing a second,  
and newer, version of OpenSSL in a different directory?

Where did you install the OpenSSL package?  Did you use the defaults,  
which installs in /usr/local/ssl?

What configure option(s) did you use when building BIND?  Did you  
explicitly state "--with-openssl"?  The default, not specifying "with- 
openssl", will use Apple's OpenSSL, which is OpenSSL 0.9.7, not  
OpenSSL 1.

I ***just*** successfully built BIND 9.7.2-P3 with OpenSSL 1.0.0.c.  I  
am also running MacOS X 10.5.8, but on an Intel machine rather than  
PPC.  My added OpenSSL was installed in it's default location, /usr/ 
local/ssl.  The configure command for building BIND was "./configure -- 
with-openssl=/usr/local/ssl".  Note that I explicitly specified the  
path for OpenSSL to avoid using the Apple supplied version of OpenSSL.
