The only thing to fix is don't put your compiler in strict C90 mode.
I'm inclined to agree. While there's an argument for backward compatibility,
C99 was standardized nearly a quarter of a century ago. OpenSSL 1.x is younger
than C99. It doesn't seem like an unreasonable requirement.
But as Tomas wrote, anyone who thinks it is can submit a pull request.
The more that I dig into this and look at the new OpenSSL 3.x the
more I am inclined to think C99 is good enough. Everywhere. Also I doubt
that the age of the thing matters much. The portability does.
Now I await with a flame proof suit for someone to yell "rewrite it
all in rust!" Not bloodly likely.
