i'm trying to compile libwww on a server running fedora core 2.  when 
i try to configure libwww with the option --with-ssl=/usr/share/ssl, 
configure returns this error:

checking whether we can find OpenSSL... configure: error: Could not 
find the /usr/share/ssl libraries.  You must first install openSSL.

i'v also tried --with-ssl, --with-ssl=/usr and --with-ssl=/usr/share 
all with no joy.

i know there is nothing wrong with the openssl installation on the 
server because every other application i've configured on this box 
with ssl has compiled with no problem.

has anyone out there encountered this problem?  and, if so, how did 
you rectify it?

much thanx in advance.
