I am using the distro-provided version:

Arch linux doesn't package -dev packages, the headers are part of the
openssl or openssl-1.0 package. So they live in
"/usr/include/openssl/*.h" and "/usr/include/openssl-1.0/openssl/*.h"

Currently rebuilding cgit, but that might take a while since it's just a
RaspberryPi so in the meantime, since I run cgit through uWSGI behind
nginx, I fixed this by adding LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libcrypto.so.1.0.0 to
the uWSGI cgit environment. Still don't know how this happened and why
is the coredump reporting a SEGV in the wrong lib(with which in a
LD_PRELOAD it actually works).

Thanks! In the end this is really just a packaging / build bug so not an
upstream problem.
