Description CyberRax 2012-06-26 21:00:22 UTC
The description in OpenSSL's Makefile for "386" option:
- "Use optimized assembler for x86"
OpenSSL's INSTALL file however gives a different description:
- "Use the 80386 instruction set only (the default x86 code is more efficient, but requires at least a 486) [...]"
Also for the "no-sse2" option the INSTALL text specifies the following:
- "Both '386' and 'no-asm' options above imply 'no-sse2'"

So while the "386" setting is disabled by default it does suggest that turning it ON in x86 hardware would result in better performance, while it's actually the opposite on anything newer than a i386. It also disables SSE2 support (which is activated by default).

Also for atleast 2 updates the Makefiles names the RC5 cipher "C5 chipher". My native tongue ain't English, so perhaps "chipher" (with an 'h') is indeed correct, but the name of the algorithm most definitly isn't.

Fix: See attached patch
