Subject RE: [users@httpd] Compile apache 2.2.26 with openssl1.0.1e failing
Date Sun, 01 Dec 2013 21:49:08 GMT
Please try to install  gcc for 4.7.2 version and put gcc in the path before old gcc,old gcc
is under /usr/local/bin and new gcc 4.7.2 will be installed under /usr/local/gcc-4.7.2 and
 update your profile file /etc/profile for /usr/local/gcc-4.7.2/bin.
stil you getting the error,please keep only following libs under /usr/local/ssl/lib and please
check for libs and in the  lib folders and move these libs to backup
Please keep following 2 libs only in the /usr/local/ssl/lib;
and please move other libs from /usr/local/ssl/lib to some backup folder.
now run,configure and make and look for compilation errors.
thats it.
please let me know,If You have any questions or concerns.

Hi all,
Im trying to build apache2.2.26 on CentOS5.10 final x86_64, linked to openssl1.0.1e which
is also compiled and installed from source under /usr/loca/lib64:

I've used the following process to compile openssl1.0.1e:

$ ./Configure --prefix=/usr/local --openssldir=/usr/local/openssl enable-tlsext linux-x86_64
threads zlib enable-idea enable-rc5 enable-mdc2 enable-ec shared$ make depend$ make

$ sudo make install
$ openssl versionOpenSSL 1.0.1e 11 Feb 2013
$ openssl s_client -connect -starttls smtp | grep Protocol

depth=2 C = US, O = GeoTrust Inc., CN = GeoTrust Global CAverify error:num=20:unable to get
local issuer certificateverify return:0250 CHUNKING    Protocol  : TLSv1.2

$ openssl s_client -connect | grep Protocoldepth=2 C = US, O = GeoTrust Inc.,
CN = GeoTrust Global CAverify error:num=20:unable to get local issuer certificate

verify return:0    Protocol  : TLSv1.2
So as expected the client gets to use the TLSv1.2 protocol. I guess that means (maybe) openssl
is good to go ...

The relevant part of my apache configure command:
$ ./configure LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib64" --enable-ssl=shared --with-ssl=/usr/local/lib64

with double attempt to point apache to the openssl libraries, but make is failing with following

This is not my first time I compile apache and openssl and have never seen this error about
apache tools. What am I missing here? Any thoughts?

I guess it is because of the order of the system library and your local library dir in the
linker search path:
libtool --mode=link ... -L/usr/lib64 -L/usr/local/lib64/lib ...

 Yeah but that kinda beats the purpose of "--with-ssl" switch when compiling apache. This
should tell apache to look for the openssl libraries in that directory and nowhere else otherwise
how are we going to be able to build apache against specific openssl version on systems that
have multiple versions of it installed?

understood...  open a bug... 

Something is definitely wrong here, either apache does not behave as expected during compile
time or I'm totally mistaken about the use of the  "--with-ssl" option.
