Kerberos 1.9, can it be compiled to use OpenSSL .9.8 (FIPS140-2)?

I wanted to know if there is a way to compile Krb 1.9 to use OpenSSL .9.8 (its 
the only version that is FIPS-140-2 based)?

I downloaded the new version today (from 1.8.1) an noticed some issues compiling 
with my existing OpenSSL libraries.  I did a bit more digging and found out that 
most of the issues seem to be with it looking for aspects of OpenSSL 1.0.  

Problem is I want to use the FIPS-140-2 certified version of OpenSSL, which is 
currently at .9.8.  Is there a different option to set this up that I am 
missing?  Or is 1.9 only going to use OpenSSL 1.0 and up?
