Re: Incompatable crypt? (ITS#970)
Multiple libraries provide a crypt(3) implementation including
OpenSSL and your system libraries. The best way to avoid this
problem is to hack OpenSSL not to provide a crypt(3). If your
system supplies crypt(3) in -lcrypt or -lutil, you might try
reordering of the libraries (by editing config.status and
then runnng it to generate new make files). However, if
crypt(3) is in -lc, adding an explicit -lc early in the
library set is NOT recommended.
Personally, I recommend hacking OpenSSL.
