finding openssl library?

I am trying to install a perl module on a fedora 6 server that has plesk installed. There is no management interface in the plesk panel for perl modules so I logged into ssh as root to install the module. There were a few dependencies missing so I used MCPAN to install them and all went well except for Crypt::SSLeay which requires the openSSL library and it cant be found in the standard locations, (due to plesk I'm sure). I would install openSSL except if you run openssl at the terminal it runs so it must be installed.

My question is... how can I find the openSSL library?

Thanks to everyone.

Try installing the openssl devel package and then installing Crypt::SSLeay.
