I think the problem may be that we demand header files that exist only in libevent 2, but we accept libraries that only support libevent 1... until we finally link.

Possible fix in branch bug19902_try1 in my public repository. I claim we should merge it whether it fixes the issue on openbsd or not.

See my comment and patch on #19758, sorry I wasn't aware this had a separate ticket.

The patch in that branch wouldn't work because that whole conditional is being skipped.

Sorry for the delay here -- the first half-a-dozen times I looked at this, it looked wrong to me. But now I understand: I think this should work okay.
