A new upstream release LibreSSL 2.0.1 already addressed that:  basically
stop using -Werror in the portable library because many compilers have
warnings that OpenBSD's compiler does not, and I guess they did not
think the warnings legitimate or worth the effort of 'fixing' right now.

This new version brings in many small changes from the still-ongoing
cleanup.  ABI versions bumped to libcrypto 30.0.0 and libssl 27.0.0.
AFAICT only private_RC4_set_key was removed, and ssl_version_string
added to the respective libraries' exported symbols.

Am I right in thinking Debian would not bump its own SONAME if there
were unimportant ABI changes, like these seem to be?
