Re: Problems with libcrypto
if anyone cares or this helps, I have solved the problem.
When using a 64 bit compiled OpenSSL distribution AND trying to
compile OpenSSH with IBM's vac 8.0 compiler, the compiler can't seem
to find the .RAND_add function in the symbol table for the libcrypto.a
archive. Even though I compiled zlib and ssl with vac8.0, the
solution was to either A) compile ssh with gcc or use ver 6 or earlier
of the vac compiler. Both vac 6 and gcc were able to read the symbol
table of the libcrypto archive properly.
