You probably mean /usr/local/ssl, not /usr/bin/ssl.

I do not maintain the jumbo patch myself.  Erik Winkler has been doing
that lately.

Erik - I think the best thing to do would be to include both kinds of -I
and -L settings at the same time.  It should not hurt to have extra
directories (even non-existent ones) in the search paths.  Something like:

CFLAGS = ... -I/usr/local/include -I/usr/local/ssl/include
LIBS = -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/ssl/lib -lcrypto

should work.

BTW, why is the jumbo patch dropping the definition of CPPFLAGS?  This
looks like a bug to me.
