...only with versions older than nginx-1.7.0, you need a small patch
(attached) in order to compile nginx-mainline against LibreSSL,
because LibreSSL developers decided that LibreSSL is OpenSSL-2.0.0...
I didn't send this patch to nginx-devel@ yet, because I'm still trying
to convince them that LibreSSL should present itself as OpenSSL-1.0.1,
in which case no changes to nginx would be necessary.

Best regards,
Piotr Sikora
