Well, I'm sorry but the ITS can't handle MIME messages.

Well, I've found plenty:

the file openssl/ssl.h cannot be located on your system.  Apparently,
it's not where you expect it to be, or CPPFLAGS are not being read as
expected by configure.  I'm more inclined towards the latter, as no "-I"
appears in the cc commands in your log.

That's the project's choice, not mine, although I find it reasonable.

represent a broken means to

as they do not allow, for example, to sort the order in which paths
should be searched and so.

That's another business.  In this case, administrators could use bundled
packages instead of building their own.
