No, the preferred thing is to set -rpath within the executable, which
we do already (see Makefile.solaris).  It's possible that you need to
modify rpathdir to include /usr/local/ssl/lib and /usr/local/lib,
but I'd think that indicates fairly serious brain damage in Solaris'
runtime loader.  We have many other Solaris users and none of them
have complained of this, so I wonder if you don't have something

See configure's --with-libraries option.
