OpenSSL -> "OPENSSL_cleanse" ?

Hi All, 

I have a newly installed server. Everything seems happy except for items
using or building with OpenSSL -- I keep getting references to
"OPENSSL_cleanse" being incorrect, wrong unknown etc

I realize this is probably an internal change but I can't find which version
of OpenSSL to run to make things work as expected...

For example I checked an outgoing mail and saw this error:

220 please start a TLS connection
/usr/libexec/ /usr/lib/ Undefined symbol

Building PHP with openssl has the same problems...

Has anyone come across this and found the solution?

As always hint, suggestions, links and ideas welcome.
