not just nginx., but maybe other software too that got used to that 

just checked opensslv.h, and it is different in 2.0.1 from 2.0.0:

#define OPENSSL_VERSION_NUMBER  0x20000000L

i dont know  what happens when changing 
#define  OPENSSL_VERSION_NUMBER  0x10002002L 

the openssl-binary compiles find, but i cannot check with nginx-mainline
right now, maybe later

thanks for the patch!



regards, mex
