I found a change in src/crypto/external/bsd/openssl/lib/libcrypto/arch/sparc/bn.inc
caused the failure. On NetBSD 9.2 source tree, I could build working
libcrypto.so.14.0 when bc.inc obtained from 9.1 is used.

 # XXX bn-sparcv8plus.S doesn't work well. why?
 BN_SRCS = bn-sparcv8.S
+AFLAGS.bn-sparcv8.S+= -Wa,-Av9
 .include "../../bn.inc"

bn-sparcv8.S is used always in 9.2 for sun4m and sun4c, and,
bn-sparcv8.S should work correctly in 32 bit CPUs according
to comments in OpenSSL's sparcv8plus.S. bn-sparcv8.S and
OpenSSL's sparcv8.S have no difference.

I don't know why bn-sparcv8.S does not work in some people's
sun4m and sun4c. This is beyond my power.

So, I changed bn.inc to avoid to use bn-sparc.S in sun4m and sun4c
as following, this works well in my SS20:
.if ${MACHINE} == "sparc64"
# XXX bn-sparcv8plus.S doesn't work well. why?
BN_SRCS = bn-sparcv8.S
AFLAGS.bn-sparcv8.S+= -Wa,-Av9
.include "../../bn.inc"

In addition, crypto.inc also has similar change that
.if ${MACHINE} == "sparc64" is removed and some sparcv9 codes
are used, however, this seem to have no bad effect at least
in the SS20.
