0.9.7e has a few advisories against it.

programmer doesn't implement them, the library behaves the
same as a no-threads build, so there is no impact here.
Programs which use threads and OpenSSL _will_ crash randomly
if openssl is not compiled with thread support.

Please apply the attached patch, and also remove the
