[openssl-users] Compile OpenSSL for Android

Hey all,

I finally compiled the OpenSSL for Android, the problem was with the
Setenv-android.sh scritp. After fixed it I can compile using the following
command line:

./config shared no-ssl2 no-ssl3 no-comp no-hw no-engine

With OpenSSL 1.1.0c, if I use only --openssldir the make install mess with
my system libs. I have to use --prefix together to install in a different

But, now I'm trying to compile another program, using the OpenSSL compiled
lib, and I'm getting the following message:

checking openssl/ssl.h usability... yes
checking openssl/ssl.h presence... yes
checking for openssl/ssl.h... yes
checking for library containing SSL_library_init... no
configure: error: libfko needs ssl

Is it a problem with the compiled OpenSSL lib?
