      Description

      The building of a static library (cryptohelper) and it's inclusion in a shared library (jlib), seems to have caused various problems, depending on the build environment.
      In VC2015 it caused 'multiple definitions of' errors - but these did not occur in a VS2017 setup.
      In Ubuntu 14.04 - it caused various 'missing symbol' errors (missing openssl symbols referenced by cryptohelper), but these did not appear in Ubuntu >=16.04 or CentOS distros.

      It has also caused some issues (previously fixed) with symbol visibility requiring the need for /WHOLEARCHIVE / --whole-archive to be used.
