Subject Re: mod_ssl in trunk with OpenSSL 0.9.7 as a minimum requirement?

That's also fine with me, yes. Generally speaking, are there any rules
for handling this sort of version checks in httpd code (and when
aborting with #error is acceptable)?

(Nit: 0x0090700f is actually 0.9.7, 0.9.7f would be 0x0090706f.)

I would expect so, yes - as long as OpenSSL behaves the same on NetWare
as on other platforms.
