Check again. It says:

Curious. We have a travis job that makes sure that *every single merge* we do
also build and test fine with libressl. On mac even.

Nobody has presented any patch to us to improve our libressl support. I have
not seen that patch before. It looks like it corrects the libressl version
number, not actually fixing a build problem?

I must be blind. I see no libressl patch there?
