Solar Designer,

Many thanks for your help once again. JTR is now patched and
working.Pleaseconsider the following question

- The OpenSSL documentation says that for "historic reasons" SSL is
installed in /usr/bin/ssl (refer the OpenSSL INSTALL file). Since many JTR
users may end up installing it here, would you consider amending the
MAKEFILE to use this path by default in the -I and -L parameters?

Kind regards,
