  I'm still experiencing the same problem. My libcrypto.so is not found. shrext is still 
not defined in xmlsex-1.2.9/configure.

  Steps to reproduce:

$ cd xmlsex-1.2.9/build
$ ../configure --prefix=some-path --with-openssl=path-to-openssl
  (note path-to-openssl contains just *.so, not *.a)
  (now, since $with_openssl/lib/libcrypto$shrext is not found,
   OPENSSL_LIBS default to $with_openssl/lib/libcrypto.a)
$ make install
gcc -shared  .libs/app.o .libs/bn.o .libs/ciphers.o .libs/crypto.o .libs/digests.o 
.libs/evp.o .libs/hmac.o .libs/kw_aes.o .libs/kw_des.o .libs/kt_rsa.o .libs/signatures.o 
.libs/symkeys.o .libs/x509.o .libs/x509vfy.o  -Wl,--rpath 
-Wl,/opt/src/xmlsec1-1.2.9/build/src/.libs -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/opt/soft/x129/lib 
../.libs/libxmlsec1.so /opt/soft/openssl-0.9.7g/lib/libcrypto.a -ldl -lxml2 -lpthread -lz 
-lm  -Wl,-soname -Wl,libxmlsec1-openssl.so.1 -o .libs/libxmlsec1-openssl.so.1.2.9
gcc: /opt/soft/openssl-0.9.7g/lib/libcrypto.a: No such file or directory
