Attached is small patch to make it build properly under RedHat 7.2.   
In addtion to corrections the patch fix support for current (i.e.     
0.9.4 and later) openssl releases. (Nobody should use releases older  
than 0.9.6 anyway).                                                   
                                                                      
Apply with patch -p0 from $ERL_TOP.                                   
                                                                      
There are still some warnings in erl_sl_alloc.c.

.

Is there any way to avoid those warnings ?
