You've lost context here.  We were talking about possibly rolling
updates from Owl-current _prior_ to the Big Update into 1.1-stable.
That still used the old OpenSSL.

As for the latest -current, yes, we've broken binary compatibility for
OpenSSL, and we've also dropped support for and
These are now binary-compatible with newer systems (such as RHL9), but
not with older Owl.  So those who have built/linked custom software
against old OpenSSL and/or old libdb on Owl 1.1, will have to rebuild
that when upgrading to the newest Owl-current.
