What, exactly, are you trying to do? Your question has nothing to do with wget.

The tarball you downloaded is only the FIPS module (which you probably don't need). The latest stable version of OpenSSL is the openssl-0.9.8g.tar.gz tarball. Once you unpack it, you need to configure it, compile it, and install it.

I assume you are trying to install openssl?

Fist you need to cd into the new directory (cd openssl-fips-1.1.2)

Then read any files that look like README, INSTALL and so on. Installation instructions should be in INSTALL

The first thing you should do is look in the package repositories for whichever distro you're using and install it from there first. Are you really trying to install only the FIPS module or are you trying to install OpenSSL itself?

You only installed the runtime files for OpenSSL. To get the development files you need to install the libssl-dev package. I recommend you bookmark http://packages.ubuntu.com/. All I did is search for hmac.h to figure out which package provides it. There is probably some way to figure out which package provides a file without that website, but I'm not a *buntu (or any other Debian derivative) user so I'm not familiar with their tools.
