[openssl-dev] [openssl.org #4447] Missing generators for sparcv8plus.s, sparcv8.s and sparccpuid.s (OpenSSL 1.1.0 pre4)

When building OpenSSL 1.1.0 pre4 on Solaris Sparc for 64 Bits I get an 
error, because before building crypto/bn/sparcv8plus.o first generates 
crypto/bn/asm/sparcv8plus.s from crypto/bn/asm/sparcv8plus.S with the 
following command

gcc -E  crypto/bn/asm/sparcv8plus.S > crypto/bn/asm/sparcv8plus.s

This command is missing CFLAGS. As a consequence, the generated .s file 
does not work for 64 bit compilation and compiling it fails with lots of 
errors of type:

/usr/ccs/bin/as: "crypto/bn/asm/sparcv8plus.s", line ...: error: detect 
global register use not covered .register pseudo-op

The pre3 version compiled crypto/bn/asm/sparcv8plus.o directly from 
crypto/bn/asm/sparcv8plus.S (upper case ".S") using "gcc -c" and all 
CFLAGS, include flags etc.

So either one does the same for pre4 or one adds a Makefile rule for 
crypto/bn/asm/sparcv8plus.s generating it from 
crypto/bn/asm/sparcv8plus.S respecting CFLAGS, include dirs etc. or 
simply copying it from the .S file.

I think the switch from .S to .s happens in src2obj() inside 
Configurations/unix-Makefile.tmpl. So if it is intentional, you need to 
define and use a generator from .S to .s.

The following patch worked for me, but I don't know whether it is how it 
should work:

This seems to be consistent with how it is done for


The same changes probably need to be done for
