We really should stop using SSLv2.  It was either making the
functions related to ssl 2 do nothing, and potentionally silently
breaking the applications, or just removing the related function
from the API and trying to make sure they fail on build and
hopefully catch most of the problems like that.

I think I'll also change some of the header files so that no v2
related things are defined or declared, since the define for it
doesn't seem to be used correctly everywhere.
