Rich Salz via RT

Thanks, patch applied.  I will apply the other one as well.

Ticket resolved.

> Here are the patches to the OpenSSL 0.9.8-beta5 Configure script for
> Stratus VOS.  I've tested them on a Stratus Continuum (PA-RISC) system
> running VOS 14.7.0ax and on the Stratus V Series V400 system (Intel
> IA32) running VOS 15.1.0ah.  These changes are sufficient for our PA-
> RISC platform, and they are necessary but not sufficient for the Intel
> IA32 platform.

> second patch that VOS IA32 needs but which also affects other
> platforms.

> support cross compiling with gcc, so the build has to be run on the
> proper platform anyway.
