I have no issues installing to a non-standard location, and with a very
few hacks, can even eliminate the -R compiled-in search paths and create
a build entirely managed by LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

It would help if you explained better what bug you see in handling the
--with-ssl arguement, and I think we could resolve this easily.  If the
issue is that openssl.pc is not processed correctly by httpd or not
created correctly by, then we can fix either defect.
