OpenSSL is pretty portable, AFAIK. But I would assume that it too relies
pretty much on a POSIX layer. I figure you need to consult the OpenSSL sources
or ask the OpenSSL developers to get insights in how you'd best approach that.

I think you have. If you make sure to #ifdef your changes in the existing
tradition, we can then later incorporate your changes back and have libcurl
compilable for VxWorks out-of-the-box in the future...

OpenSSL is not bundled with curl. is the place to look
for the OpenSSL package.
