The linux shared libraries from openssl are apparently needed by the
openssh package.  So you need to build and install them too, and then
install openssh with

rpm -Uvh --nodeps openssh...

But I think you are better off with installing openssl* rpms instead
of installing the openssl libraries by hand.

After removing your openssl installation, just issue

rpm -Uvh

and possibly 

rpm -Uvh
