While using openssl 0.9.8c I get:

$ openssl ciphers EXPORT56
Error in cipher list
19034:error:1410D0B9:SSL routines:SSL_CTX_set_cipher_list:no cipher
match:ssl_lib.c:1176:

and with 0.9.8d:

$ openssl ciphers EXPORT56
Error in cipher list
10434:error:1410D0B9:SSL routines:SSL_CTX_set_cipher_list:no cipher
match:ssl_lib.c:1176:

I'm pretty sure this used to work with previous versions of openssl as
promised by the ciphers.1 man page. Also note that EXPORT and EXPORT40
is now the same list:

$ openssl ciphers EXPORT40
EXP-ADH-DES-CBC-SHA:EXP-ADH-RC4-MD5:EXP-EDH-RSA-DES-CBC-SHA:EXP-EDH-DSS-DES-CBC-SHA:EXP-DES-CBC-SHA:EXP-RC2-CBC-MD5:EXP-RC4-MD5:EXP-RC2-CBC-MD5:EXP-RC4-MD5
$ openssl ciphers EXPORT
EXP-ADH-DES-CBC-SHA:EXP-ADH-RC4-MD5:EXP-EDH-RSA-DES-CBC-SHA:EXP-EDH-DSS-DES-CBC-SHA:EXP-DES-CBC-SHA:EXP-RC2-CBC-MD5:EXP-RC4-MD5:EXP-RC2-CBC-MD5:EXP-RC4-MD5
