This is a discussion on Re: Does Mod_SSL use SSL_get_shared_ciphers()? - modssl ; Phil, Is it the way I am building Apache or is Linux or Solaris hiding this symbol?

Is it the way I am building Apache or is Linux or Solaris hiding this
symbol? I've checked this on a gentoo build, but on my machine the
module has no symbols.
Details as below:
nm mod_ssl.so | grep SSL_get_shared_ciphers
..SSL_get_shared_ciphers T 269028692
..SSL_get_shared_ciphers_139_116 t 269031772*
T Global text symbol.
t Local text symbol.
