OpenSSL 0.9.7g 11 Apr 2005

which openssl
/usr/bin/openssl
--when i pass this to cpan i still get the same error above. i've also tried passing '/usr/bin' to cpan. same error.

i've also tried installing the development environment libssl-dev. it did not make a different and i still get the same error

    Examine Makefile.PL, you'll see this
    # See lib/ExtUtils/MakeMaker.pm for details of how to influence # the contents of the Makefile that is written. my %configParams = ( NAME => 'Net::SSLeay', VERSION_FROM => 'SSLeay.pm', # finds $VERSION DIR => [ 'Net-SSLeay-Handle-0.50' ], DEFINE => '-DPERL5 -DOPENSSL_NO_KRB5', # perl-5.8/gcc-3.2 n +eeds first, RH9 latter DISTNAME => 'Net_SSLeay.pm', dist => { COMPRESS => 'gzip', SUFFIX => 'gz', }, LIBS => ["-L$openssl_path -L$openssl_path/lib -L$openssl_path/o +ut32dll $libs"], INC => "-I$openssl_path/include -I$openssl_path/inc32 -I/usr/k +erberos/include", OPTIMIZE => $optimize, # Uncomment (and edit) following for debugging with gdb # LIBS => ['-L/usr/src/openssl-0.9.3a -lssl -lcrypto'], # INC => '-I/usr/src/openssl-0.9.3a/include', # OPTIMIZE => '-g', %more_params, ); WriteMakefile(%configParams); # See lib/ExtUtils/MakeMaker.pm for details of how to influence # the contents of the Makefile that is written. #WriteMakefile( # 'NAME' => 'Net::SSLeay::Handle', # 'VERSION_FROM' => 'Handle.pm', # finds $VERSION #);
    You want to focus on INC/LIBS,
    LIBS => ["-L$openssl_path -L$openssl_path/lib -L$openssl_path/o +ut32dll $libs"], INC => "-I$openssl_path/include -I$openssl_path/inc32 -I/usr/k +erberos/include",
    $openssl_path is the path you're supposed to pass, and its supposed to contain $libs
    $libs = $rsaref ? "-lssl -lcrypto -lRSAglue -lrsaref" : "-lssl -lcrypt +o";
    What this means is that "ssl.$Config{dlext}", "crypto.$Config{dlext}" (%Config from use Config;) are supposed to be located somewher in $openssl_path, $openssl_path/lib, $openssl_path/out32dll, because thats where the compiler/linker are going to look (perl -V:cc -V:ld).

    Feel free to edit the Makefile.PL LIBS/INC entries appropriately.

    I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

      how can i set $OPENSSL_PATH if it's currently undefined on my system?

      echo $OPENSSL_PATH gives me nothing.
      i was also able to find Makefile.PL's for other installed perl modules, ie.,

      /root/.cpan/build/Archive-Zip-1.16/Makefile.PL
      /root/.cpan/build/Crypt-CipherSaber-1.00/Makefile.PL
      /root/.cpan/build/Test-Warn-0.08/Makefile.PL
      /root/.cpan/build/Test-Exception-0.21/Makefile.PL

      etc., but none that seemed specific to Net::SSLeay
        What are you talking about? Net-SSLeay's Makefile.PL prompts you for it. Edit Makefile.PL.
