I just installed OpenSSL 0.9.6b to the default /usr/local/ssl

And am using:

./configure --with-pam --with-skey=/usr/local/skey --with-tcp-wrappers

Now whether or not I supply --with-ssl-dir or modify the cofig script or
set CFLAGS I still get:

#... other defaults here
configure:4481: gcc -o conftest -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/ssl/lib

configure: failed program was:

int main(void)
        char a[2048];
        memset(a, 0, sizeof(a));
        RAND_add(a, sizeof(a), sizeof(a));
        return(RAND_status() <= 0);
#... other defaults here

SSL works fine (using it for webmin). 

Any ideas? (I did check the list archives but nothing meaningful was
