You need to use --with-includes and --with-libraries to point at the relevant subdirectories of /home/michael/openssl.
That should be enough to get it to build. Whether it will actually run is a different question. You may in fact need to fool with rpaths for that part; but that's quite dependent on what platform you're using, which you didn't say.
