Re: openssl (and ssh)
The upstream version of openssl passes "make test" using default settings.
So it's a debian issue. This is how I got round it:
You just pull the debian source,
look in the file "Configure" for the line
on the copy change that string to be "debian-amd64",
then debuild. The resulting packages seem to work.
I've got to run an errand. I'll put the modified version on the archive
when I get back ... and put a bug report in that requests the change.
The paragraph above should be enough for people who're in a hurry.
