maybe I didn't make myself clear enough, so:
The code comiles just fine, the problem is the broken asn1 strucure in
the generated files. I managed the encryption part using "wb"
instead of "w" when finally writing the file, but the signing is still
broken with 1.1, and working with 1.0 using the same code on Windows. I
tested Linux using that code, and it works just fine.

Well, this is part of a larger software bundle, so a build environment
is needed. And I like cmake. :)

It's in there because it was documented to use it on windows. I manually
copied the file to the appropriate place after compiling/installing
openssl, but if it is not needed anymore, I can remove the line.

Again, larger bundle, I forgot to remove them for that small excerpt,
they're not needed here. (but don't change anything, too)..

And, again: that should have read OpenSSL instead of OpenSSLSyn, and
the libs should read OpenSSL::Crypto. I have to use a special finder
to get the includes/libs to compile, but that's only a compile/link

Best regards, Jan
