Both work, but 0.9.7 is the current version, and hence recommended.

FWIW, here is a (typical ?) configure command line to compile with SSL. 
You may have to modify it for your own needs.

./configure  \
   --prefix=/opt/httpd \
   --localstatedir=/var/log/httpd \
   --enable-modules=most \
   --enable-mods-shared=all \
   --enable-ssl \
   --with-z=/opt/zlib \
   --with-ssl=/opt/openssl \
   --enable-deflate \

Note the --with-ssl=/opt/openssl that tells configure where to look for 
Also, check out the configure output, it will say which modules are 
going to be compiled in, and how (shared or not).

Definitely weird.
Are you sure apachectl is using the right httpd.conf ?
