Summary0002855: Build failure with LibreSSL 3.7.2
DescriptionWhen building NetSurf 3.10 with LibreSSL 3.7.2 the build will fail because of legacy code paths that are no longer needed with newer LibreSSL versions. This can be solved by simply disabling these code paths with newer LibreSSL versions.
Steps To ReproduceBuild NetSurf using LibreSSL instead of OpenSSL.

For easy reference:

Does this comment need to be updated?

 /* OpenSSL 1.0.x, 1.0.2, 1.1.0 and 1.1.1 API all changed
  * LibreSSL declares its OpenSSL version as 2.1 but only supports 1.0.x API

I was going to ask if you are using this in Gentoo because I'm the ersatz maintainer of netsurf, but I see now that you're running the libressl overlay.
