Performance Issue With OpenSSL 1.1.1c

I built OpenSSL 1.1.1c from the recent release, but have noticed what 
seems like a significant performance drop compared with 1.1.1b.  I 
notice this when starting lighttpd.  With 1.1.1b, lighttpd starts in a 
few seconds, but with 1.1.1c, it takes several minutes.

I also noticed that with 1.1.1b, the CFLAGS automatically included 
'-Wall -O3', but with 1.1.1c, '-Wall -O3' is no longer included in the 
CFLAGS.  was this dropped?  I  added '-Wall -O3' to the CFLAGS, but this 
did not seem to have any affect on the performance issue (unrelated?).

This is for a 32-bit ARM build.
