That happens when "OPENSSL_FIPS" is defined:

  # define OPENSSL_VERSION_NUMBER  0x101000b0L
  # ifdef OPENSSL_FIPS
  #  define OPENSSL_VERSION_TEXT    "OpenSSL 1.1.0k-fips-dev  xx XXX xxxx"
  # else
  #  define OPENSSL_VERSION_TEXT    "OpenSSL 1.1.0k-dev  xx XXX xxxx"
  # endif

Given no FIPS for 1.1.x, perhaps that "#ifdef" should be "#if 0".  With
1.1.x the "Configure" arguments should not mention "fips".
