openssl -0.9.8d trick needed on Mandriva


I could have posted in Mandriva but me thinks those who know openssl may look here first?

2) Mandriva installs openssl in non-standard
/usr/bin/openssl (the executable)
/usr/lib/openssl (the folder)

Other distros may have the same issue?

3) so normally the config script for 0.9.8d would have been
cd /download for file/
./config --prefix=/usr/bin --openssldir=/usr/lib/openssl
make && make test && make install

4) however when I did that it created
/usr/bin/bin/openssl and an include folder so there is a possible bug in the configure script and I am too lazy and not a programmer to search for it heh heh

5) so I redid the config but with this line
./config --prefix=/usr/ --openssldir=/usr/lib/openssl

and that stopped the extra bin and include folder being created.

6) now when I run unSpawns rkhunter I have no errors yeh
