[openssl-users] Error: does not have a number assigned

Short version: Just do 'make update' and the numbers will be added automagically.

Long version:  There  is a script, 'util/mkdef.pl', which gets invoked by 'make update'. It scans the header files
for new APIs an updates the .num files  (libcrypto.num/libeay.num and libssl.num) accordingly. For windows,
it also  updates the module definition files (*.def).
So 'make update' will add your new API function. But be warned: As Jakob already mentioned, if you update
OpenSSL it can happen that you get merge conflicts (if you use git) or your numbers will get overwritten
(if you extract tarballs). You will have to renumber you symbols (or remove them and run 'make update' again).
