WebPositive and OpenSSL 1.0

Just tried installing a nightly GCC2 hybrid, and WebPositive doesn’t work, complaining that it can’t find libcrypto 1.0.0 and libssl. Turns out that WebPositive is running in the later GCC8 part of the operating system, which has the newer openssl 1.1 libraries. Odd that WebPositive wants the older ones.

The magic incantation to get it working is “pkgman install openssl1.0_x86” to install an older version of the library, for the _x86 (GCC8 rather than GCC2 compiler) side of the system.
