1.0.1p9 is correct.

I've checked the header files in my Solaris 11.3 VM.  The calls aren't
there.  They were removed by Oracle as a result of how the OpenSSL package
was configured:

         jp at ai-vm:/usr/include/openssl$ grep ECDH opensslconf.h
         #ifndef OPENSSL_NO_ECDH
         # define OPENSSL_NO_ECDH
         # if defined(OPENSSL_NO_ECDH) && !defined(NO_ECDH)
         #  define NO_ECDH

Be careful in doing that, if this is a machine you care about and
frequently build software for.  Multiple installed versions of OpenSSL can
cause all sorts of subtle pain.

Make sure you install your side-compile in somewhere that ld.so and the
compiler will never look unless specifically asked.
