It depends on what the link is. There isn't a login_footer action but there
are other options.

You should probably open a ticket (I don't think there is a catch-all one)
on core.trac.wordpress.org with any links you find in core that don't check
HTTP v. HTTPS. There are a few functions we we can easily convert links to
to make sure schema is respected, including home_url(), get_home_url() (as
of today), admin_url(), includes_url(), etc.
