    IRCD-Hybrid: OpenSSL path not found

    I'm having a problem enabling the SSL on an IRCD-Hybrid install on an Ubuntu 10.04 (x86) server, and also on a clean install. Specifically, IRCD-Hybrid doesn't detect the OpenSSL folder.

    To reproduce the problem on a clean 10.04 (x86) install:
    Code:
    wget -O ircd-hybrid-7.2.3.tar.gz http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ircd-hybrid/ircd-hybrid/ircd-hybrid-7.2.3/ircd-hybrid-7.2.3.tgz
    tar xzf ircd-hybrid-7.2.3.tar.gz
    cd ircd-hybrid-7.2.3/
    ./configure --enable-openssl=/usr/bin/openssl
    Output:
    Code:
    <snip>
    checking for usleep... yes
    checking for OpenSSL... not found. Specify a correct path?
    checking zlib.h usability... no
    <snip>
    
    Compiling ircd-hybrid 7.2.2
    
    Installing into: /usr/local/ircd
    Ziplinks ................ no
    OpenSSL ................. no
    Modules ................. shared
    IPv6 support ............ yes
    Net I/O implementation .. epoll
    EFnet server ............ no (use example.conf)
    Halfops support ......... no
    Small network ........... no
    G-Line voting ........... yes
    
    Configured limits:
    NICKLEM ................. 9
    TOPICLEM ................ 160
    'which openssl' pointed to '/usr/bin/openssl' but the directory itself doesn't contain any files.

    Has anyone had a problem like this as well? If so, is it fixable or do I need to find another solution to secure the IRC traffic? Thanks in advance!

    Dangerous !!!
    when saying

    Code:
    ln -s /usr/bin/openssl ./openssl
    ./configure --enable-openssl=./openssl
    result is

    Code:
    configure: error: invalid value for --enable-syslog: ./openssl
    Is there a misfit between options ???
    So log write over /usr/sbin/openssl ???
