Actually yes, node is already built. I'm just looking to recompile the
openssl dependency inside node/deps/openssl.
I tried running make inside node/deps/openssl/openssl but unfortunately it
threw an error related to the linker (there was some undefined reference or
something). I then noticed that each openssl sub-package (ssl, crytpo etc.)
has its own Makefile. Since I only updated a fie inside the ssl package of
openssl, I ran
make clean all
inside that directory and it seemed to finish with no errors.
So the main thing I'd like to understand is which packages can I recompile
so that node will pick up these openssl modifications? Is recompiling just
the ssl package of the openssl package sufficient? Or do I have to
recompile the entire openssl package? Will recompiling node as a whole also
dynamically recompile the openssl package and pick up those changes?

Yeah exactly, the bundled version in deps/openssl.
Thanks! Do I need to run ./configure? or just make? what about make
Right, I assumed you had already built node. You don't have to
reinstall it on every compile, the binary is quite self-contained.
Here, try this:
$ export JOBS=<num-cpus> # speed up build
$ make BUILDTYPE=Release
$ out/Release/node # starts the REPL
If you want debug builds, repeat the last two steps with s/Release/Debug/
