Really?, I thought ActiveState ActivePerl was pretty much dead/historic.

While I have not bothered with OpenSSL 1.1.x builds yet, I usually use
Strawberry Perl for VC-related work, and it seems to work fine with the
1.0.2 sources.  Since I have not tested with 1.1.x sources, this is
obviously not intended as advice to people trying to build, more as
something you might consider for an updated version of NOTES.PERL
(after testing it of cause).
