Dan, you did not specify the platform.  I have not built on RISC since OpenSSL 0.9.8.
I have built OpenSSL 1.0.2k on Itanium as follows.  I mostly agree with Michael, 
but have not backed off optimization quite as far.  Note that my use cases do not
include encrypting/decrypting large payloads, so can get away with reduced
performance to get correct results (i.e., pass the tests).

I had to edit util/selftest.pl for the compiler's identification output
and because the ar(1) command will not accept /dev/null as an input file.

I also eliminated a lot of the tests in test/cms-tests, because we do not use the 
modules being tested.  (They were failing.)  I can believe these might work with 
lower optimization such as Michael recommends.

Below is the Configure output.  Hope this helps.
