No idea.  What did you do before to create the files decryptionKey.pem
and mimeMessageEncrypted.eml?  I'm building OpenSSL, but that doesn't
mean I'm overly fluent in using the command line tool.

/usr/bin, as all DLLs.  But you can't see which version they are since
both versions, 0.9.8 as well as 0.9.8a use the same versioning:

The above method won't help since the DLLs don't have symbols.  You have
to use the dll link lib.  On my system, with 0.9.8a installed:

  $ cd /usr/lib
  $ nm libcrypto.dll.a | grep X509_VERIFY_PARAM_set_flags
  00000000 T _X509_VERIFY_PARAM_set_flags
  00000000 I __imp__X509_VERIFY_PARAM_set_flags
