Ach. It does not work that way, this "compatibility" API is defined by
the openssl build and should not be changed by a program. It only works
for a few functions like SSL_load_error_strings() which point to the
right functions. Those are enabled in the Debian build. The *main*
problem is that structs like SSL are opaque and can't be dereferenced.
There is no "compatibility" for that. Therefore the two options I
mentioned are the valid candidates (a third might be to switch away
from openssl to a different toolkit).
