It turns out that the only OpenSSL functionality newer than 0.9.7d that 
the crypto app requires is DES_ede3_cfb_encrypt (introduced in 0.9.7e), 
so the patch is quite simple (attached).  That is still preliminary 
because I haven't tested it across all of our platforms.  And I still 
cannot build Riak because at least one of the plugins (eleveldb) assumes 
GNU tar without probing, and so the build breaks.  I'll send that patch 
to the Riak list directly... :-(
