curl command-line is not working:

curl: (35) error:14195006:SSL routines:tls_construct_cke_ecdhe:EVP lib

As far as I can tell, this error is being thrown up because evp_pkey_asn1_ctrl() returns <0.
This suggests the problem lies somewhere in the ASN1 code, but I have no idea what I'm looking for.

Suspect the answer to this might be to upgrade the version of GCC we are using in the toolchain. There is a patched GCC6 here:
At the moment, I'm unable to even rebuild the ppc-amigaos toolchain (GCC 5 or 6) due to conflicting autotools dependencies, and m68k-amigaos is stuck on an even older version of binutils, so I'm not going to attempt switching to GCC6 until I at least get it building for ppc-amigaos.

GCC6 for OS3 here:

Unable to build much as it appears to have some header dependency issue - conflicting gettimeofday in sys/time.h when building libiconv, for example.

gcc6 build fixed to the extent it now builds working binaries without include errors.

A couple of outstanding issues:
* gcc-ranlib does not delete - this needs to be deleted otherwise libtool tries to use it and it calls our old ranlib with an option that hadn't been invented back then. (rm command in makefile not working)
* locale_t needs fixing - this is a problem with the clib2 includes which Olaf is aware of. (quick fix is to addd typedef void* locale_t to wchar.h)
* openssl e_os.h tries to include netinet/tcp.h - this doesn't exist in clib2, looks like OpenSSL doesn't actually need anything from it anyway. (quick fix is to touch netinet/tcp.h)

Even with this new version of gcc, OpenSSL still doesn't work. New error message is:
curl: (35) OpenSSL SSL_connect: SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL in connection to

Attached diff between our OpenSSL and the one used by AmiSSL (which works), in case the problem is with our patches rather than the compiler.

Applied a patch which looked important but hasn't resolved this issue (at least from curl; didn't try netsurf). Will need to check file for other patches we might be missing.

Can't see anything else important that we're missing :(

Turns out that SSL is largely working ( domains work with latest CI build), but still gives "unable to fetch document" (as does

So there's something wrong, but it isn't all SSL/TLS as previously thought.

it is not something as simple as the OS3 port using the default certificate verification prompt code? (which simply says the user refused the certificate)

I don't think so, as the certificate prompt worked last time I checked and there shouldn't be any reason for those sites to prompt.
