FWIW, if the Red Hat RHEL/RHAS3 Openssl 0.9.7a is kept right up to date
(IIRC latest Openssl is update 4), there will be no security risks (ASN.1
vulnerability). Red Hat keeps the same version numbers for dependencies -

However, I agree with Quanah and Jon and prefer to compile and install my
own stuff for Openldap, including Openssl. It mostly goes into /usr/local
(exceptions are SASL2 and Heimdal).
