I tested it with our ssl_client busybox helper and it works as
expected. I had to add a missing symlink to the
libtls-standalone-dev package, though.

There is another problem though, that it conflicts with the libressl
libtls. After libtls-standalone was installed, I cannot uninstall it:

ncopa-edge-x86_64:~/aports/main/busybox$ sudo apk del libtls-standalone
World updated, but the following packages are not removed due to:
  libtls-standalone: libressl abuild aports-build .alpine-release-deps

This happens because both libressl libtls and libtls-standalone

ncopa-edge-x86_64:~/aports/main/busybox$ apk info -R libressl
libressl-2.7.4-r1 depends on:

I think that the fix for this is to use the openssl ABI,,
or use a completely different name, like or Anything that does not conflict with libressl's libtls.
