I don't know about SSLeay, but there are benchmarks for a different
implementation at: http://www.eskimo.com/~weidai/benchmarks.html

If the block size you've chosen is the same, then the algorithm doesn't
matter. One way of measuring this is to cold start your machine, do a
large number of SSL transactions and then look at the packet counts.
