Hi Steve,

Thanks. Yes I first built it using the standard way (./config fips shared)
and it went fine.
It's just when I switched to using the debian/ ubuntu build script (which
generated a slightly different Makefile compared to the standard one).

Not sure what could cause this problem.

I also ran the "fips_algvs fips_test_suite post" test and it went fine.

What could be causing this error?

Thanks and I truly appreciate your helps.
