RE: installation problems

	Would you recommend just downloading and installing a pre-built
openSSL package from openssl.org?

It looks like your libcrypto.a has references to dl*(). On lots of systems
these functions are provided by a "libdl." Also, on lots of systems, these
functions are only available from shared objects (i.e. ".so" libraries and
not ".a" libraries.)

It's obvious that you're doing your own build of OpenSSL. I would try and
rework that into a shared library build. Failing that, you can try and
figure out a way to put a "-ldl" on that line to get libdl in there.
