I've updated the version of OpenSSL to 0.9.8e-2.  This also includes the
openssl-devel package.

This is a bugfix release.  The upstream release contains a backward-
incompatible change, which results in incompatibility between 0.9.8e
and older releases of openssl.  This change (the result of the function
EVP_CIPHER_CTX_key_length) has been reverted in this Cygwin release.
This fixes the OpenSSH problem with SSH protocol 1 reported by Angelo
Graziosi on the main list:
