    Remove the engine, you don't need it anymore--it's all included now in
    the main build. As a matter of policy, I remove the engine (rpm -e it,
    if on Linux) if it's there, and then install the newest and greatest
    OpenSSL (source, but use what you want). SSH will compile fine then,
    unless you have other problems.
