Note the above code and what your doing.

 --with-ssl-dir  is a *BASE* directory.

It attempts to add on $BASE/include to find the header files.
So in your case it's trying to find the header files at

If you change the LIBS= lines in the above configure file
(ignore unless you want to build a new configure
file) to reflect: 

1st spot: LIBS="$saved_LIBS -L$ssldir/lib"
2nd spot: LIBS="$LIBS -R$ssldir/lib"

The above fix has solved the problem on NeXT and Linux at my home.

Note.. the is file is wrong and the above correction is
the same for it.

Can we get a 1.2.2p2 with this patch and the other minor ones suggested
so we can put this issue to rest?
