Unfortunately the new nassl version 2.1.2 doesn't compile on arm64, we didn't succeed to fix this.
And upstream "have no plans to support arm64":
But upstream is opened to merge pull request to add this support, so help is welcome.

I've been looking into this as well, but due to the way that openssl is downloaded during the build, I'm not sure the best way to patch it, since the files don't exist during dpkg's patch phase.

A possible workaround is to build it with no-asm set, it appears that the assembly in openssl isn't actually correct for armv8.

I do have 2 patches, I'm just not sure the best way to apply them, aside from possibly writing up a function in the package's Suggestions @sbrun?

This is what we use for the build. And the patch could be forwarded upstream.
