Perhaps something for the FAQ?

I just tried compiling tpop3d (1.5.3) on a fresh RHEL3 server.  It would
compile without TLS but would not compile with it, claiming openssl/ssl.h
was not found and was not usable even though it was clearly present in

The real fix may be somewhat more involved than I want to get into, but my
workaround - having discovered the problem was a kerberos library issue
since kssl.h was being pulled in automatically - was to just make dubious
use of the openssl-root arg to allow the configure scripts to succeed:

FAILS: ./configure --enable-tls
WORKS: ./configure --enable-tls --with-openssl-root=/usr/kerberos

I had a quick check of the mailing list archives and didn't see mention of
this - perhaps I'm the first to run into it?  If not, were you able to
solve it more satisfactorily?
