Sorry for the delay. I did some research on this in August but being busy at
the time eventually forgot about the thread.

The latest changes that I found in the change log dated back to OpenSSL 0.9.7.
Walking through the git log for the implementation seems to confirm that.

However, recent man pages say, that the OPENSSL_config functions are deprecated
since OpenSSL 1.1.0 and OPENSSL_init_crypto should be used now, so the patch
might require an extra #if for newer OpenSSL versions.
