I think it might have been built as a static module, not a dynamic one.
Do "httpd -l" to check it out: if it appears there, it's static.

I use the following to make sure that mod_ssl is built dynamically, on 
Solaris 8, 9 & 10:
LDFLAGS='-R/usr/local/openssl/lib' \
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/httpd-2.0.55 \
   --enable-mods-shared=all \
   --enable-so \
   --enable-ssl \

Note the --enable-mods-shared=all.

I think it's irrelevant here. SSL_set_state is not a symbol in OpenSSL 
0.9.7i (I checked using nm). It has a SSL_state, though.

The ./configure script is probably trying to check which version of the 
SSL library is installed, and the result is positive anyway:

But you might look more closely at the output, it says somewhere if 
modules are built dyanmically (I don't have an example right now).
