building OpenSSL 1.1.1 with -DPURIFY

Hi Tomás

I've downloaded and build openssl 1.1.1d.

However, when I run the tests there appears to be failures.

Extract of the make test output  below:

../test/recipes/20-test_enc.t ...................... 
Dubious, test returned 1 (wstat 256, 0x100)
Failed 1/172 subtests

Test summary shows:

Test Summary Report
../test/recipes/20-test_enc.t                    (Wstat: 256 Tests: 172 Failed: 1)
  Failed test:  171
  Non-zero exit status: 1
Files=155, Tests=1457, 97 wallclock secs ( 1.74 usr  0.17 sys + 85.00 cusr 21.23 csys = 108.14 CPU)
Result: FAIL
gmake[1]: *** [_tests] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/root/openssl-1.1.1d'
gmake: *** [tests] Error 2

Is this something I need to resolve  before installing 1.1.1d and if so how can I resolve the test failures?

You can either try 1.1.1d or the patch from

It should solve the problem.
