A static OpenSSL FIPS build will also have problems as statically built FIPS
applications need to be linked with fipsld. It will appear to work until you try
to enable FIPS mode and you'll then get a fatal "signature does not match" error.

If you build and install a shared version of the FIPS capable OpenSSL this
shouldn't happen.
