Ok i have finally managed to cross-compile openssl with fips for QNX
platform. What i did wass modifing the fipsld script not to input this
magical number[ $? -ne 42 ] && exit $? and the returned output of
"${FIPS_SIG}" -exe "${TARGET}" was saved in SIG variable, because this
line SIG=`"${TARGET}" tried to execute QNX compiled code on linux, what
is rather impossible, to get the returned digest and recompile the
target with it. Now with these little changes i was finally able to run
openssl fips cross compiled app on qnx and i can gladly say that it
