Question Include dir help


This must be the most stupid question I have ever asked, but hey that me

I was wodering where in slackware 8.1 you can set the paths to the include dirs.

Like etc/profile for paths
and etc/ for lib-dirs.

I have installd my software in /usr/local/software-version and need to link the includefiles so that other software(during compilaton can access them. The one i'm having problem with is openssl includes while compiling apache with ssl.

I have solved the problem by symlinking /usr/local/include to /usr/local/openssl-0.9.6d/include, but was wondering if there is a better way to do it. Don't want to symlinking 20 softwares includefiles.

The best thing to do is uninstall openssl and reinstall it to where it was designed to be installed, /usr/bin and /usr/include/openssl, there are a lot of apps that use openssl and they will all need to be modified to find it in the location your have chosen. By installing it in a custom directory you are only creating a nightmare for yourself with added work to install anything that needs/uses openssl.
