This provides a compatible one (w/ engine disabled, cpuid fix) and links it into the steam runtime.

The error looks like: line 713: 7842 Segmentation fault (core dumped)

We can add openssl-steam = openssl_1_0_2-steam; above and use that name in the steam package.

This broke the game "Wargame: European Escalation" for me.

@FRidh Could you open an issue for this and tag me on it?

It looks like ubuntu has a version-script.patch for openssl which adds these version symbols.

I can try to build openssl-steam with that patch, but I might need your help to test it.
