Preferrably not. If we do this, we need to update everything that
depends on openssl... openssh, etc. I'm not ready to do this (and I
don't think it should be necessary).

Well, apache 1.3.20 was built on a system with openssl 0.9.5a. This
should not matter (I don't think there are any deps on openssl within
apache itself). What matters is mod_ssl's correlation to apache and
openssl. It should work witn 0.9.5a (I haven't heard that it is
required to use 0.9.6+). The problem seems to be with mod_ssl
relating to apache, but the strange thing is the version of mod_ssl
I'm trying to build (2.8.4) is what is used in the 7.2/8.0 updates
which works fine. So there is something else that is causing the
