A new OpenSSL version gives a new package including openssl-0.9.8a. Available here.
Ok, I thought I’d give it a try. So here is Xchat with SSL support. (OpenSSL 0.9.8 included). Just did a quick check with my BNC, seems to work. more testing welcome.
OpenSSL is a nasty piece of software to cross compile. I’ll polish the script I made a bit and put it online.
I made a new release of my xchat build. As usual, no nifty features, just plain xchat.

I’m a bit surprised, ’cause it seems that this is the build with the least features available…Maybe I should think about an update… 😉
