Well, this is the directory setup in the openssl rpm (I am trying to
adopt the rpm to solaris).

Which patch do you mean?  I am just using the tarball for 1.2.2p1.

In any case, it seems to me that the problem is not not finding the
include or lib files:  in config.log, I see

configure:1891: checking for OpenSSL/SSLeay directory
configure:1918: gcc -o conftest -I/space/local/include  -L/usr/ucblib
conftest.c -ldl -lsocket -lnsl -lz -L/space/local/lib -lpam -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
configure: failed program was:
#line 1906 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"

                        #include <openssl/rsa.h>
                        #include <openssl/bn.h>
                        #include <openssl/sha.h>
                        int main(void) 
                        {RSA *key; char seed[2048];memset(seed, 0,

So the gcc line seem to be correct.

I'd like to add, that 

1.2.2 works with openssl-0.9.4


1.2.2 does not work with openssl-0.9.4 (above configure problem)
1.2.2p1 does not work with openssl-0.9.{4,5} (above configure problem)

The reason I am trying to use openssl-0.9.5 is that somebody mentioned
a leak (related to the random device) on solaris when using 0.9.4, and
supposedly this leak is fixed in 0.9.5.
