It seems that they have done the porting just in the past couple weeks:

482d23bcac upstream: hold our collective noses and use the openssl-1.1.x
48f54b9d12 adapt -portable to OpenSSL 1.1x API
86e0a9f3d2 upstream: use only openssl-1.1.x API here too
a3fd8074e2 upstream: missed a bit of openssl-1.0.x API in this unittest
cce8cbe0ed Fix openssl-1.1 fallout for --without-openssl.
