Not a package I use, and the only obvious change in the book since
8.1 is adding libnsl which I assume is not required on the older

Paul might care to google for arch-linux vsftpd : their build file
shows a change to the conf to apparently enable SSL, and a sed to
link to openssl-1.1.

As always, I cannot recommend using an old version of openssl ;-)
But fixing that means taking steps to fix make-ca.  If Paul looked
at a recent version of the svn book with openssh-1.1.0h and
make-ca-0.7, the fix should be there, make-ca-0.8 should be ok.

I say 'should' because links -g seems to connect to e.g. google
using https: but that's as far as I've got in my acceptance-testing
of the current build (last night's books), currently building llvm
on the way to Xorg.
