Post can't compile nrpe 2.13


hello solarisq

I am trying to install nrpe-2.13 on a solaris 10 sparc box.

I've been very lucky in the past using this guide:

http://utahsysadmin.com/2008/03/14/c...on-solaris-10/

Normally solaris is notorious for not recognizing the ssl headers when it is trying to compile nrpe. This command usually does the trick:

Code:
[qadb03-dc2:~/nrpe-2.13] root% ./configure --with-ssl=/usr/sfw/ --with-ssl-lib=/usr/sfw/lib/
And the directories specified are all completely valid:

Code:
[qadb03-dc2:~/nrpe-2.13] root% ls -l /opt/sfw  
total 14
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     bin          512 Feb 12  2008 bin
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     bin          512 Sep 20  2011 etc
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     bin          512 Feb 12  2008 include
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     bin          512 Feb 12  2008 lib
drwxr-xr-x   7 root     bin          512 Feb 12  2008 man
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     sys          512 Feb 12  2008 READMEs
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     sys          512 Feb 12  2008 sbin


[qadb03-dc2:~/nrpe-2.13] root% ls -l /usr/sfw/lib | head
total 119670
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root           7 Feb 12  2008 64 -> sparcv9

drwxr-xr-x   3 root     bin          512 Feb 12  2008 glib
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     other        512 Feb 12  2008 gnopernicus-1.0
Yet configure always ends with the following line:
Code:
checking for SSL headers... configure: error: Cannot find ssl headers
I was wondering if anyone might have some hints on how to proceed?

Thanks!!

You are specifying /usr/sfw but listing /opt/sfw.

my mistake and apologies...

I also tried it with this command.

Code:
./configure --with-ssl=/opt/sfw --with-ssl-lib=/opt/sfw/lib/
and had the same result:
Code:
checking for SSL headers... configure: error: Cannot find ssl headers
thank you!

You should investigate the configure script to see how it tries and why it fails to find the ssl headers and libraries.
