Yeah,I didn't read that till afterwards.  no big deal.  It would have been
much easier if I had done as you said.  but it also got me to upgrade openssl
0.9.7 to the latest subversion

I think if installed manually, openssl always installs to the
/usr/local/openssl dir. and normal Configure scripts usually assume
/usr/local/openssl i think.

thanks, but I didn't actually want to use 0.9.6.  

I had this problem.  I tried on a redhat 8.0 box, (which had the same problem
with openssl as above, but after fixing that...), compile had problem with
readline.  problem is on the redhat 8.0 mahcine I have mysql installed, and it
comes with readline support, it seems.  so the makebuildenv.pl script was
picking up both readline.h in /usr/include/mysql/ and /usr/include/readline/ .
I moved the mysql directory out of /usr/include, reran configure, and that got
it to finish compiling.
