I was able eventually to complete the build under Debian after
injecting the apparently missing in the tree kits (openssl-1.1.1o does
contain all the necessary stuff, including the abovementioned e_os.h
file, which gets renamed when built under pkgsrc).

I tested the resulting .fd file - seems to be working fine as a BIOS
for a NetBSD-current guest - qemu-3, nvmm  accelerated.

When I tried to follow the same procedure under NetBSD-current (as I
did under Debian), I got an undefined gmake target, so it needs
further modification.

It does merit posting an issue to the GitHub page - after all, one is
conditioned to expect the build to work out of the box under Linux...
As far as the build under NetBSD, I am not yet clear what is missing.
