Unhappy Compiling wget with static linking, unable to link openssh


I have a linux box, that is running a very limited kernel, and I need to use wget there.
For this purpose, I'm trying to compile it with static linking. The compilation seems ok, but when trying to add SSL support with openssh, I seem to run into linking issues...

As this setup is missing also ssh, I am compiling the openssh. The compilation of openssh seemed to go ok, and this is the content of /usr/local/ssh/lib

/usr/local/ssl/lib> ls -la
total 2000
drwxr-xr-x  3 root root    4096 2012-03-22 14:28 .
drwxr-xr-x  9 root root    4096 2012-03-22 14:28 ..
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 1752954 2012-03-22 14:28 libcrypto.a
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  272388 2012-03-22 14:28 libssl.a
drw-r--r--  2 root root    4096 2012-03-22 14:28 pkgconfig
When trying to configure wget compilation:

wget-1.13> env LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/ssh/lib" ./configure --with-ssl=openssl
configure: error. openssl development libraries not found
Any ideas what is going wrong ? Did the compilation of openssh not work as it should ? Do I point to a wrong dir ?

There is also a standing question in, if you're a member, and want to get some points...

Uh oh, looks like it was just a typo... not ssH but ssL.
difficult to read your own text

The full procedure can be seen in the stackoverflow link above if someone faces similar issue


linking, openssh, static, wget
