[stunnel-users] stunnel 5.06 not yet linked against OpenSSL 1.0.1t on debian jessie

Static linking is much easier, especially when put in a non-standard place, such as /usr/local/customer-name/lib -- this means if somebody does an update of say openssl alone you won't have this problem.  You can also do it non-static as long as it is in a non-standard place and be pretty safe.

My versions have stunnel 5.44 and openssl 1.0.2 -- works fine.  It is static and keeps on ticking.

that's the log on a debian jessie, starting stunnel:

2018.10.24 ..: stunnel 5.06 on x86_64-pc-linux-gnu platform
2018.10.24 ..: Compiled with OpenSSL 1.0.1k 8 Jan 2015
2018.10.24 ..: Running  with OpenSSL 1.0.1t  3 May 2016
2018.10.24 ..: Update OpenSSL shared libraries or rebuild stunnel

All debian packages are upgraded:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

$ dpkg -l|egrep 'openssl|stunnel'
ii  openssl                        1.0.1t-1+deb8u9
ii  stunnel4                       3:5.06-2+deb8u1

Guess the log tells the current stunnel-package is not linked against openssl 1.0.1t lib yet.

No pinning is active:
$ ls -l /etc/apt/preferences
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Jun  4  2010 /etc/apt/preferences $

Is that - stunnel not being linked against the current openssl-lib - a serious problem?
Will there soon be a stunnel-package being linked against openssl 1.0.1t?
