[openssl-users] Build from source; library not found?

I just verified. The required shared libraries and runpath settings are part of the dynamic section in elf files. 

readelf -d openssl 

displays a runpath, while 

readelf -d libssl.so.1.0.0 

does not show a runpath. 

Therefore my test was wrong. I cannot check shared libraries directly.

Now this is interesting. Yes, openssl can find both the libraries libssl and libcrypto. Would that imply that rpath is only a setting for application (executables) but not for shared libraries? In that case the test I tried would be totally meaningless.   Hiran
