Thanks Peter,

A merge of my OpenVMS changes with the new common.h inadvertently missed off that one new line!
Stunnel now builds correctly on OpenVMS.

Many thanks,

Duncan Morris

But there is also this segment of code...

#else /* OpenSSL older than 1.1.0 */
#define X509_STORE_CTX_get0_chain(x) X509_STORE_CTX_get_chain(x) #define OPENSSL_hexstr2buf string_to_hex #endif /* OpenSSL 1.1.0 or newer */

So it should build with OpenSSL 1.0.2, too. Have you actually experienced problems building it?
