Trouble building 1.2.2p1 on Solaris 2.7

I installed OpenSSL 0.9.5 in the default location (/usr/local/ssl) on my 
Solaris 2.7 box, and then tried to install OpenSSH 1.2.2p1.  Configure (with 
no arguments) complains that it can't find working OpenSSL libraries.  The 
last few lines of config.log show a whole bunch of attempts to compile the 
test code, all failing of course.

My /usr/local/ssl DOES have an include/openssl directory with the three 
relevant header files (rsa.h, bn.h, sha.h), and /usr/local/ssl/lib does have 

What could the problem be?  I'm not familiar with autoconf, but the looks like it ought to be trying all possible combinations and 
one ought to be working.  The full config.log is at; I didn't want to clutter up 
the list with it.
