Link Net::SSLeay to custom-built OpenSSL

RachunZero has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

The instructions for Net::SSLeay say to use the OPENSSL_PREFIX environment variable to set the path to your OpenSSL. If I do that, it seems to find my OpenSSL:

*** Found OpenSSL-0.9.8p installed in /dsk01/apache/app/build2064/open +ssl-0.9.8p
But it creates a mangled
# ldd => (file not found) => (file not found) => /usr/lib/ => /lib/ => /lib/
If I omit the OPENSSL_PREFIX, it finds the /usr/sfw/bin/openssl and creates a happy library:
ldd /dsk01/apache/download/build2064/perl_modules-20101126/Net-SSLeay- +1.36/blib/arch/auto/Net/SSLeay/ => /usr/sfw/lib/ => /usr/sfw/lib/ => /usr/lib/ => /lib/ => /lib/ => /lib/ => /lib/ => /lib/ => /lib/ => /lib/ => /lib/ => /lib/ => /usr/sfw/lib/ +0.9.7 => /usr/sfw/lib/libcrypto_extra. +so.0.9.7 => /lib/
My compile script looks like:
PERL_DIR=/dsk01/apache/app/build2064/perl-5.12.2 PL=$PERL_DIR/bin/perl cd Net-SSLeay-1.36 $PL Makefile.PL PREFIX=$PERL_DIR -n make clean OPENSSL_PREFIX=$OPENSSL_DIR \ $PL Makefile.PL make; make test; make install
and the important output is
/dsk01/apache/app/build2064/perl-5.12.2/bin/perl "-Iinc" /dsk01/apache +/app/build2064/perl-5.12.2/lib/5.12.2/ExtUtils/xsubpp -typemap /dsk0 +1/apache/app/build2064/perl-5.12.2/lib/5.12.2/ExtUtils/typemap -typem +ap typemap SSLeay.xs > SSLeay.xsc && mv SSLeay.xsc SSLeay.c gcc -c -I/dsk01/apache/app/build2064/openssl-0.9.8p/include -I/dsk01/ +apache/app/build2064/openssl-0.9.8p/inc32 -I/usr/kerberos/include -D_ +REENTRANT -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -I/usr/local/include -D_LARGEFIL +E_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -DPERL_USE_SAFE_PUTENV -O2 -g -DVER +SION=\"1.36\" -DXS_VERSION=\"1.36\" -fPIC "-I/dsk01/apache/app/build2 +064/perl-5.12.2/lib/5.12.2/i86pc-solaris-thread-multi/CORE" SSLeay. +c Running Mkbootstrap for Net::SSLeay () LD_RUN_PATH="/dsk01/apache/app/build2064/openssl-0.9.8p/lib:/usr/lib" +gcc -G -L/usr/local/lib SSLeay.o -o blib/arch/auto/Net/SSLeay/SSLea \ -L/dsk01/apache/app/build2064/openssl-0.9.8p -L/dsk01/apache/app/bu +ild2064/openssl-0.9.8p/lib -lssl -lcrypto -lz \ ...

Does anyone have any insight as to why my custom OpenSSL isn't linking in properly?

    LD_RUN_PATH="/dsk01/apache/app/build2064/openssl-0.9.8p/lib:/usr/lib" +...

    You might want to check:

    (a) if your does in fact live in the above RUNPATH .../openssl-0.9.8p/lib,  and (b) if that path is actually being written to Check RUNPATH/RPATH settings with

    $ dump -Lv .../

    The theory is that the linker (ld) puts the lib search path(s) into the .so (or binary), and the dynamic linker ( then picks it up from there...

    (See also LD_RUN_PATH, and the option -R, in the ld man page.)

      Oh. That's it. Thanks!

      I forgot that the gcc packaged in Solaris 10 doesn't do runpaths properly using the environment variable. It's only got /usr/sfw/lib showing in the runpath header.

      If I want a proper runpath, I have to explicitly pass it in -R parameters to gcc.

      Hmmm... I wonder what I do now. Can I change the gcc options? Makefile.PL seems to ignore LDFLAGS.

        IIRC, you can say

        dynamic_lib => { OTHERLDFLAGS => '-R...' }
