1. Installed latest version of dlcompat. No change
2. Followed suggestions in the PROBLEM file in openssl distribution, about
the problem with Mac ld, here:

" * System libcrypto.dylib and libssl.dylib are used by system ld on MacOS
NOTE: The problem described here only applies when OpenSSL isn't built
with shared library support (i.e. without the "shared" configuration
option). If you build with shared library support, you will have no
problems as long as you set up DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH properly at all times.
This is really a misfeature in ld, which seems to look for .dylib libraries
along the whole library path before it bothers looking for .a libraries.
means that -L switches won't matter unless OpenSSL is built with shared
The workaround may be to change the following lines in apps/Makefile and
It's possible that something similar is needed for shared library support
as well. That hasn't been well tested yet.
Another solution that many seem to recommend is to move the libraries
/usr/lib/libcrypto.0.9.dylib, /usr/lib/libssl.0.9.dylib to a different
directory, build and install OpenSSL and anything that depends on your
build, then move libcrypto.0.9.dylib and libssl.0.9.dylib back to their
original places. Note that the version numbers on those two libraries
may differ on your machine.
As long as Apple doesn't fix the problem with ld, this problem building
OpenSSL will remain as is."

So far no luck with any of these solutions. I get the same error with
The only information I've found on the internet refers to dlcompat, and
recommends installing dlcompat from source, which I have. It also recommends
installing dlcompat-shlis, which I can not find anywhere to download.
And, the only dlcompat I found at their site on sourceforge was from 2003.
Anyone know of a newer one?
But back to the problem at hand. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
