it's rather difficult due to the API change between 0.9.6 and 0.9.7.
i guess the ftp://ftp.itojun.org/pub/libdes.tar.gz is the way to go
(maintain 0.9.6 des_xx under lib/libdes).

with openssl 0.9.7b they have openssl/des_old.h which does bunch of
#defines to rewrite des_xx into _ossl_des_xx (backward compatibility
function) calls (with lots of args tweaked), so source-code level
compatibility is already provided (sort of). but i don't think is what
to provide binary-level compatibility for des_xx we need to keep 0.9.6
des_xx and 0.9.7 DES_xx (renaming bunch of *.c files) and include them
into libcrypto. then the question is, what should we do about header
