I suppose you have noticed how that deteriorates, btw.  I actually
made an attempt, just for kicks...

    In file included from test/asynctest.c:62:
    include/../apps/apps.h:160:59: error: expected ')'
    BIO *bio_open_owner(const char *filename, int format, int private);
    include/../apps/apps.h:160:20: note: to match this '('
    BIO *bio_open_owner(const char *filename, int format, int private);

This isn't going to be "fixed".

Linking C++ programs with OpenSSL libraries is supported.
Including OpenSSL header files in C++ programs is supported.

Building OpenSSL with a C++ compiler is not supported.
