OpenSSL legacy functions

From: Daniel Egger <>

SSLv2_client_method is used in lib/ssluse.c to forcefully use the old
v2 Version of the SSL protocol with OpenSSL. Problem is here that the
explicit v2 support can be disabled in OpenSSL and sometime people use
this option to save space and/or remove the option to use this insecure

Would a patch be accepted that checks in configure for the presence
of this function in OpenSSL and #ifdef all v2 related specialities
in the lib and the application out?
