I just did a clean installation of nmap-7.80 on a Linux system, with libssl-dev already installed

At the moment of running make I got the following warning (gcc v7.4.0) In function ‘int l_rand_pseudo_bytes(lua_State*)’: warning: ‘int RAND_pseudo_bytes(unsigned char*, int)’ is deprecated [-Wdeprecated-declarations]
   RAND_pseudo_bytes( result, len );
In file included from /usr/include/openssl/e_os2.h:13:0,
                 from /usr/include/openssl/bn.h:14,
/usr/include/openssl/rand.h:44:1: note: declared here
 DEPRECATEDIN_1_1_0(int RAND_pseudo_bytes(unsigned char *buf, int num))

I had this specific settings as I was testing some scripts, including scripts/http-vuln-cve2014-3704.nse which require OpenSSL. The script seems to be working fine.
