I'm trying to compile postgres 8.4.2 with perl and ssl support but
have no root access
./configure --with-openssl --with-perl --prefix=/home/michael/postgresql-8.4.2
checking for -lreadline... yes (-lreadline -ltermcap)
checking for inflate in -lz... yes
checking for CRYPTO_new_ex_data in -lcrypto... no
configure: error: library 'crypto' is required for OpenSSL
I did a local install of OpenSSL in /home/michael/openssl however, I
not clear how to point configure at the local library
In the INSTALL notes under "configure complains about a failed test program"
It seems to suggest I use something like ' configure ... LDFLAGS="-R
./configure --with-openssl --with-perl
only gets as far as
checking for C compiler default output file name...
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.
the ld manpage seems to indicate that -R is looking for a filename
though I'm not sure what to put in the file.
