Sorry, but openssl has only config, and not configure, and as the name
hints, it does not take these variables.  For example:

grep LD openssl-0.9.5/config |wc -l
grep LD openssh-1.2.2/configure|wc -l

In any case, I am just trying to see clearly here: is librsaref.a
needed for a working openssh?  In other words, do I need to compile
openssl with rsaref specified for config?  (I see that the openssl rpm
does not specify this option, but it does install libRSAglue.a the
function of which is not clear to me.)

Thx, as always
