Is OpenSSL compiled with the same compiler as OpenSSH? I have had
problems on Irix with libraries compiled with different compilers.

Have a look at config.log (send it to me if you like). There should
be a few compilation failure messages at the end when it was trying
to search for openssl - they should tell you more.
