No worries,  It appears that in posts upthread I misunderstood the
intent of the new code in 3.0.0.  The "openssl { <dgst> | <cipher> }"
commands are not after all deprecated in 3.0.0, it was just that the
pointer to their deprecation status was not initialised to NULL.

So the fix is a one-liner to zero out the structure `f`, ensuring
a NULL deprecation status.
