Note | the syntax applied in my previous message leads to an effective
text formatting on GitLab and GitHub platforms, as user. However as it
appears here, on the present platform it is not supported, at least as
user. Thus from now writing accordingly. Nevertheless as it appears in
your message, that does not apply to you since there are formatted
expressions that are present in it.

I realised that my very mention 'OpenSSH_8.8p1, OpenSSL 3.0.5 (...)'
exhibited 'OpenSSL 3.0.5 5', implying then that an OpenSSL component
must be installed. So as i just learned here 'libcrypto' was not as
package. I have to figure out what it is then. It might be a library,
as the prefix 'lib' suggests it. Who knows who can guess whether it is
intended to be interpreted as a package or something else. By principle
i avoid guessing when instruction provided as documentation are not
self explicit.

$ locate *libcrypto* | grep '3.0.5$'
$ rpm -qf `locate *libcrypto* | grep '3.0.5$'`
$ dnf -q provides /usr/lib64/libcrypto.so.3.0.5
openssl-libs-1:3.0.5-1.fc36.x86_64 : A general purpose cryptography
library with TLS
                                   : implementation
Repo        : @System
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/lib64/libcrypto.so.3.0.5

So that is a library it was referred to in 'libcrypto from either
LibreSSL or OpenSSL (...)' and it was installed along with installation
of component from openssl-libs package. Suggestion of complete
statement instead: 'libcrypto library from either LibreSSL or OpenSSL

Using an existing example, "password and host-based authentications", i
can formulate those features:
- password authentication
- host-based authentication

In `./configure --disable-FEATURE` 'FEATURE' in order to make sense,
has to refer to static definitions, which are likely to be one-word
expressions. Thus most probably, neither "password authentication" nor
"'password authentication'" as FEATURE would be valid.
