ahh, i observe the same on solaris 10, but did not yet investigate --
the quicker way to solve this: just change the paths in config.status,
let run config.status, and then compile :-)


Charles Diza thus spoketh:
> Wget 1.16.1 has broken detection of non-built-in openssl on MacOSX.
> Openssl comes with MacOSX but it's deprecated by Apple and it's an old

> location for custom openssl installs).

> ./configure --with-ssl=openssl --with-libssl-prefix=/usr/local/ssl
> But on wget 1.16.1, those same flags have no effect, and wget is built
> against the Mac system openssl in /usr/lib, which is old and deprecated.
