  1. icomment:
    The comment by medranocalvo saved me here!
    Considering the very high degree of redundancy in the gen_dh_params script:
     1. call openssl executable,
     2. download parameters from the internet,
     3. use precomputed parameter values embedded in the script;
    it seems ridiculous that it does not check whether the openssl executable 
    option 1 picks has a suitable version. Option 3 *does* account for the API 
    differences (has more bitsizes, and is likely way faster, so why is that 
    not preferred?).
