Due to problems linking openssl into Ethereal on systems where openssl
isn't a system library we now require to explicitly enable openssl.
This is done with --with-ssl=/usr (or whichever path openssl resides in).
I've also (hopefully) improved the checking of the dependencies so the
error that Ulf encountered should be detected.


PS: Ulf: With Suse 9.2 (whenever that will be out) it shouldn't be possible
   to acidentally install the snmp-devel and heimdal-devel libs without having
   openssl-devel installed.

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