Subject: Dyna and OpenSSL <1.0.0


Right now dynamic_1030 fails selftest in bleeding on a machine with 
Debian oldstable (openssl 0.9.8o):

$ ../run/john --test=0 --format=dynamic_1030
Error, unknown function: 
Error parsing section [List.Generic:dynamic_1030]
Error in line 487 file is ../run/dynamic.conf
Warning: doing quick benchmarking - the performance numbers will be 
Benchmarking: dynamic_1030, dynamic_1030 Whirlpool($pass) (first 32 
bytes) [32/64 64x2 (MD5_body)]... FAILED (get_hash[0](0))

It's explained by the following comment in dynamic.h:

  * Added SHA2 (SHA224, SHA256, SHA384, SHA512), GOST, Whirlpool crypt 
  * Whirlpool only if OPENSSL_VERSION_NUMBER >= 0x10000000

But is it supposed to always fail selftest when OPENSSL_VERSION_NUMBER < 
0x10000000 or it will somehow turn such formats off?
