Spasm on newer linux distributions

I just reinstalled my main computer with a brand new linux mint 14. Great software so far.

Only when I try to run (admittedly an old version) spasm it says:
spasm: error while loading shared libraries: libcrypto.so.0.9.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I fixed it by installing the package "libssl0.9.8" ... so, is any reason to not use version 1.0.0 of openssl?

Maybe this helps others when troubleshooting.

I found this online: "OpenSSL 0.9.8 and 1.0.0 are binary incompatible. The Spotify client you have is built against 0.9.8 and will not run, even if you get the link right." My guess is it just hasn't been updated to use the newer version? Or maybe it has, and you're just using an older version ;) I don't remember having any issues installing spasm on Fedora 17.

I solved also this problem, but from a different manner.
I installed from source, but IIRC I think you can't compile directly raw sources from the svn repo.
You should use the tgz I provide because I modified some code from the repo to be able to compile it on GNU/Linux.

I modified contra's sources a bit 'cuz i think there were some issues with displaying errors (at least when i tried compiling it):

Maybe somebody should push this into the codeplex svn. Maybe ask buckeye dude?

I made a patch and sent it to Buckeye Dude. They said they'd add it in, i dunno if it's been done yet or not though.
