Summary0005537: segfault on FreeBSD 11.X
DescriptionSegfault at function init_random() and init_hash(), seems like it will run after commenting out both functions.
probably a bug in libcrypto, no segfault on FreeBSD 12.X, but I'm trying to run UnrealIRCd in a FreeNAS jail and
I'm stuck with what is available on the platform.

Starting program: /usr/home/ircd/src/src/ircd
Breakpoint 1, main (argc=1, argv=0x7fffffffeae0) at ircd.c:945
945 gettimeofday(&timeofday_tv, NULL);
Current language: auto; currently minimal
(gdb) n
946 timeofday = timeofday_tv.tv_sec;
(gdb) n
948 safe_strdup(configfile, CONFIGFILE);
(gdb) n
950 init_random(); /* needs to be done very early!! */
(gdb) n
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x0000000800d0ee6e in ssleay_rand_bytes () from /lib/
Steps To Reproducebuild from source on FreeBSD 11.x or FreeNAS jail and run.

installing pkg openssl-1.1.1d and rebuilding seems to have fixed the segfault, I'm not sure which version is installed on the platform, but maybe warn the user it is borked.

So you don't know what openssl version did have the crash? :D

Likely either an outdated openssl or some 'special' platform, something we cannot fix. I am closing this one :)
