your distribution is old. It gives you openssl-1.0.2, which is no longer supported by the openssl team.
I expect, the current nsd source is not optimized to build against old, unsupported openssl version.

from https://www.openssl.org/policies/releasestrat.html:
>    The next version of OpenSSL will be 3.0.0.
>    Version 1.1.1 will be supported until 2023-09-11 (LTS).
>    Version 1.0.2 is no longer supported. Extended support for 1.0.2 to gain access to security fixes for that version is available.
>    Versions 1.1.0, 1.0.1, 1.0.0 and 0.9.8 are no longer supported.
