Unable to build from source using manual ssl-libs in /usr/local/ssl

Issue #827 closed
Former user created an issue

I need to recompile monit on older system. There is a manual installation of openssl in /usr/local/ssl. This has been refreshed to openssl-1.0.2s recently to make shure the monit compile error has nothing to do with wrong version.

my compile procedure (I'm using the following as bash-script):


./configure \
  --enable-optimized \
  --with-ssl-static=DIR=${_ssl} \
  --with-ssl-dir=${_ssl} \
  --with-ssl-lib-dir=${_ssl}/lib \
  --with-ssl-incl-dir=${_ssl}/include \
  && \

Doesn't make any difference which of the latest release I try. I was trying from git release-tag 5.7 to 5.9 with no success always failing:

make failure:

y.tab.c:(.text+0x7a43): undefined reference to `servicelist_conf'

    the following configure should be sufficient:

    ‌ ./configure --with-ssl-dir=/usr/local/ssl

  2. Massimo Sala

    @Tildeslash --with-ssl-dir works only with the OS default SSL headers.

    On Centos 5.11 I have to compile monit 5.26: I build openssl-1.0.2r and to succesfully build monit I use

    echo “don’t use old SSL headers (openssl 0.9.8)”

    yum erase openssl-devel

    export LDFLAGS="-Wl,-rpath=/usr/local/ssl/lib"

    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/ssl/lib/:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"

    ./configure --with-ssl-dir=/usr/local/ssl
