Trying to compile tn5250 with all the latest changes on my old slackware 7.1 laptop just isn't working. The problem is with some new code related to ssl. Here is the compile failure:

gcc -Wall -g -o .libs/scs2ascii scs2ascii.o ./.libs/ -lssl -lcrypto -lnsl -lncurses
./.libs/ undefined reference to `ASN1_UTCTIME_cmp_time_t'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

The 16 branch doesn't have the call to ASN1_UTCTIME_cmp_time_t() and compiles cleanly. This looks like it is in code related to 3270 communication. Scott, do you know what I can do to get this to compile? Is ASN1_UTCTIME_cmp_time_t() a function in newer versions of openssl? Can we test for this in configure?

btw - I tried compiling with --without-ssl and it compiles the ssl code anyway. Shouldn't this turn off any ssl code?
