[openssl-users] FIPS 2.0 build_tests using cross for ppc64

  *   My target can’t support native build environment, so I must use cross.
  *   Is there any way to fix those errors?

If you make any changes to the FIPS build procedure, then the result is not FIPS validated.  I think the build procedure does not support cross-compiling very well, because it expects to execute the built programs on the building host – it needs some things to run “natively” to get the digest of the built library so it can be incorporated into its power-on checks.

So you’ll have to do your own validation, hire a lab, etc.  Or wait until the project releases a new module.  That *might* support cross-compiling better, or it might not.

Sorry we don’t have better news.
