Understood, but then john-1.7.7-jumbo-6-jimfpatch-4.diff is not a
sufficient fix anyway, because
john-1.7.7-jumbo-6-auto_have_sha256-03.diff.gz, which I am applying,
re-introduces the problem for you.

I suggest that we go with the OPENSSL_VERSION_NUMBER approach, but
introduce a way to override that number.

How does this sound to you?
