  To be even more constructive here is my proposal : use pkg-config
when available
e.g. if
pkg-config --exists openssl
then grab OPENSSL_CFLAG and OPENSSL_LIBS from 
pkg-config --libs openssl
pkg-config --cflags openssl

  that would avoid most of the nastyness of the configure.in 
The existing detection code would then only be used as a fallback 
if pkg-config infos ain't available 

  I may have to do just that to get it to build for Fedora Core,
