When I replaced some binaries which required the 1.1 OpenSSL DLLs with 
ones I had compiled locally with 0.9.8, ntpd.exe failed to run because 
of a DLL versioning issue (it may have been ntpq.exe).

I needed to compile with OpenSSL 1.0.0c source so that the binaries I 
now produce will work both with earlier SSL DLLs as installed with 
earlier Meinberg installers, and with the later DLLs installed with the 
current Meinberg installer.  Having to cope with mixed versions of the 
DLLs originally by users installed over several years required special 
action to allow seamless upgrades.
