We've disabled the specific warning that OpenSSL 0.9.x triggered so
much. which complains when a function is implemented without a
separate prior prototype.  configure.ac, if building with OpenSSL,
adds -Wno-strict-prototypes.

If you want to see if they've prototyped all functions ahead of the
implementation, a quick hack is to find this line in configure (or

    CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -Wno-strict-prototypes"

Just comment it with a # or delete it, then ./configure again.
