Configure may be getting confused by the combination of options, or 
possibly you didn't hit quite the right combination.

Try setting everything explicitly, eg (untested):

$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/scott/src/openssl-0.9.7e:/usr/lib:/lib
$ ./configure --prefix=/home/scott \
	--with-cflags=-I/home/scott/src/openssl-0.9.7e \
$ make && make tests

The other thing to consider is that some of the commands are run via 
ssh/sshd.  For those, LD_LIBRARY_PATH will be set by your shell as part 
of its startup procedure.

For those, the only option is to either alter your shell startup to 
include your ssl dir in LD_LIBRARY_PATH, or force your linker to link 
against the static libcrypto libraries.

     Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
