You don't have openssl-devel installed. This is indeed an oversight of our
autoconf process. The autoconf process also doesn't notice if no bison/yacc
is installed (just noticed these two things when setting up a Suse 9.1
to compile Ethereal cvs earlier today :)

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
