I wonder what your config.log say (search for `SS')?  First, I also
thought on my Solaris box that the problem is not finding the
(open)ssl libraries.  But I have this in config.log

configure:1918: gcc -o conftest -O2 -I/space/local/include
ude  -L/usr/ucblib conftest.c -ldl -lsocket -lnsl -lz
-L/space/local/lib -lpam -L/
space/local/lib -R/space/local/lib -lcrypto 1>&5
/space/local/lib/libcrypto.a(rsa_lib.o): In function `RSA_new_method':
fined reference to `RSA_PKCS1_RSAref'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

So you see "it seems" that configure finds my libs---it just does not
like libcrypto.a.  This error message appears both when I have
openssl-0.9.5 or openssl-0.9.4 installed.

I have a Solaris box, so maybe the reason for the error is different
from yours.
