Thanks for the comment.  and yes, I'm playing with this stuff in a quick-n-dirty VM at $HOME.

There may be some older version of the Bjango specific code, that doesn't specifically require these OpenSSL parts, but if they 
exist and are available on the public Internet, I have not found them.

Short of finding an older version of the code that doesn't require these specific, new parts, I'm not sure that there is a way 
around this to produce working code.

Again, this is on a VM I put together at $HOME, and certainly not an operational or production system.

Thanks again for the comments,
