I guess the problerm is that openssl exists on your system, but it has not been installed as a regular package. I ran ./configure on a regular x86-64 Linux system, and checked config.log: configure:8867: checking for OPENSSL configure:8874: $PKG_CONFIG --exists --print-errors "openssl" configure:8877: $? = 0 configure:8890: $PKG_CONFIG --exists --print-errors "openssl" configure:8893: $? = 0 configure:8936: result: yes Apparently, nobody assumed there would be systems which do have openssl, but not installed as a regular package recognised by pkg-config. To make the check work for systems where openssl is installed locally, something similar to rexgen check is required. Just test ./configure --enable-rexgen on a regular x86* system. I.e., configure could try to compile a minimal test program using some library functions of the openssl lib and check whether this succeeds or fails. Frank
