I'm running 0.10 on Solaris Express Developer Edition 5/07. I had  
issues with the OpenSSL installed by default as it's the one with the  
bug which causes blowfish encryption to fail. (And is fixed in their  
source repository.)

I solved it by using the OpenSSL from Blastwave, which does work. My  
configure line was

./configure --with-ssl-headers=/opt/csw/include/openssl --with-ssl- 
lib=/opt/csw/lib LDFLAGS="-R /opt/csw/lib" --prefix=/opt/boxbackup

and it did actually pass the tests. The -R ... bit is necessary to  
force the runtime linker to choose the blastwave version, not the  
system version.

This is on x86 and a later version, so your milage will vary.
