qmail 'make setup check' error


hi. I am trying to get myself a qmail server up and running. In the build instructions, you give the command 'make setup check'. However, it is giving me the error "/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lssl" then exits. Anybody have an idea of what this could mean? Googling for this specific error yeilded nothing, but gave me similar errors, all about missing libraries, so I am thinking at this point that it cannot find a ssl library. I have openssl-0.9 installed. Unfortunately, I don't actually know if this is correct, and if it is, how to fix it.

Any suggestions welcome, thanks
asb

well, updated the sources.list to testing, upgraded everything. Still no go, not a big surprise as on this computer I did mostly source installs. Looked at debian's packages, and apt-get ssl-dev and libssl. One of those fixed the problem.

thanks for the link. I've been there a couple of time. I am actually following qmailrocks.com. Based of off the lifewithqmail.org, lays it out step-by-step complete with custom scripts. I do end up refering to lifewithqmail.org for the couple of problems I've encountered.
