bind-9.9.1-P2 in chroot-jail won't start, "initializing DST: openssl failure"

after updating to the new bind-9.9.1-P2 (using slackware64-current a.k.a. slackware64-14.0_beta), I could not get bind to start in a chroot-jail. in troubleshooting this problem, I tried rebuilding bind from source, reinstalling the binary packages, and regenerating the server host key for signed zone transfers.

then, after some googling I found this fix for bind in a chroot-jail on bsd which seems to allow bind to start up without complaining.

I needed to adjust the path names from the bsd path
to the slackware64 path
so I ended up running,
# mkdir -p /chroot/named/usr/lib64/engines
# cp -av /usr/lib64/engines/ /chroot/named/usr/lib64/engines
however, I wanted to ask if anyone here might know of any relevant configuration or runtime options that could be used instead of copying the .so file or if anyone had a better solution. thanks.
