If you use a stock unmodified openssl-fips-2.0.N.tar.gz tarball and an
appropriate matching set of test vectors then they can be successfully
processed (on a very wide range of platforms). That has literally been
done with hundreds of test vector sets. I suggest you circle back to the
basics. Download an unmodified openssl-fips-2.0.16.tar.gz and build that
on a known supported platform, for instance a modern Linux distro. Then
process a recent test vector set, for instance the one noted above.

If that fails you have something very broken in your build environment
or platform; you'll want to sort that out before trying anything
