Beginning with Stunnel version 4.55 and continuing with 4.56 I can
configure, make and make install without issue.

But as soon as I try to start stunnel with the following command:
/usr/local/bin/stunnel           /usr/local/etc/stunnel/stunnel.conf

I get the folllowing error message:
Clients allowed=500
stunnel 4.56 on x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu platform

Line 51: "[pop3s]": Failed to initialize SSL
str_stats: 9 block(s), 163 data byte(s), 522 control byte(s)

Any insight into this issue would be greatly appreciated.
