RE: Use of internal OpenSSL function 'ssl3_send_alert()' causes build errors on WIN32 (ITS#1955)

I suggest you file a bug report @ OpenSSL.org saying this function is missing
from their DLL's .def file. The function in question is not static or
and the code works on Unix as well as Win32 using MinGW. In the meantime, you
can manually add the missing function to your .DEF file and rebuild your
OpenSSL DLLs. This ITS will be closed since it is not an OpenLDAP bug.
