Upgrading a 1.8 system to the latest openssl (0.9.8e)

This message is just an FYI to the users out there still running 1.8 who
want to upgrade to the latest openssl. Here's a sequence of commands
that will do it, unoptimized, and there's probably a more efficient way.
This is what I've done that works. 

This presumes you have checked out your sources with CVS and are
prepared to upgrade portions of your source tree with a direct
CVS command. If you don't understand how to do that, you probably
shouldn't try this. Caveat administrator. :)

# cd /usr/src/crypto/openssl-0.9     
# cvs up -rDragonFly_RELEASE_1_10_Slip -R
# cd /usr/src/secure/lib/libcrypto   
# cvs up -rDragonFly_RELEASE_1_10_Slip -R
# cd /usr/src/secure/lib/libssl      
# cvs up -rDragonFly_RELEASE_1_10_Slip -R
# cd /usr/src/secure/usr.bin/openssl 
# cvs up -rDragonFly_RELEASE_1_10_Slip -R
# cd /usr/src ; make buildworld
Then if everything looks good:

# cd /usr/src; make installworld

Good luck!
