I think it's installed if you install the openssl development libraries.

The problem as I understand it is that the openssl development tools
have been built with kerberos support. Despite the fact that you're not
using kerberos, ssl.h needs kssl.h, and kssl.h needs krb5.h; as such you
at least need the kerberos includes to be available.

I must say that I'm surprised the #include <kssl.h> in ssl.h isn't
#ifdef'ed to only be required when kerberos will be used. Then again, my
C programming knowledge is poor to nil.

I really couldn't tell you. I doubt it - I think the problem is the way
RH have configured their openssl libs - but I'm not even remotely sure.

If the suggestions offered above don't solve your problem then... well,
frankly I can't remember how I worked around it. Perhaps editing the
Makefile to add the include manually might do the trick?
