Recently, I imported the OpenSSL repository with git cvsimport.  It
produced slightly corrupted results.

CVS repositories as old as yours typically require manual tweaking of
cvs2git because they contain traces of various CVS bugs.  It might
make sense to ask on the Git mailing list for help from someone who
remembers previous conversions.  This is not just about using the
right tools, but requires rather arcane CVS knowledge.
