FIPS Compliance.

I wanted to know whether libssh2 1.4.2/1.4.3 are compatible with FIPS
compliant OpenSSL version *openssl-1.0.0-20* ?

I compiled libssh2 1.4.3 with this particular version of openssl and i
could see that my application linking to this libssh crashes.

In other cases, my application runs successfully if i compile libssh2 1.4.3
with openssl-1.0.1e-16.

Could some one please shed light on this one?

Alternately please let me know whether i can configure libssh2 to use a
particular set crypto algorithms supported by the openssl.

Thanking you on advance.
