Hi Martin,

which configure.vbs command line did you use? I suspect you're pointing 
to pre-built openssl libraries. While that should work it's something we 
haven't been testing for a long time.

VirtualBox 7 sources contain sources for OpenSSL 3 and the build system 
automatically takes care of it (unless you confuse it otherwise).
