nchan-1.2.15 builds well as a part of the FreeBSD www/nginx-devel port,
and that's what I'd recommed to use.

The issue is probably related to the OpenSSL version 3, so in case it's
possible I'd recommend to avoid of usage of that version at the moment.
Another options are:
o) refresh C knowledge and patch the third-party module
o) wait until the vendor or a contributor provides a compatible version

I'd recommend to contact to the vendor to ask about the build requirements
of the third-party module.

Thank you.
