    Hi there,

    I have followed this post

    However, I got error from executing make:

    Undefined symbols:
    "_BIO_set_callback_arg", referenced from:
    _start_connect in ab.o
    "_BIO_get_callback_arg", referenced from:
    _ssl_print_cb in ab.o
    "_SSL_CTX_set_info_callback", referenced from:
    _main in ab.o
    "_BIO_set_callback", referenced from:
    _start_connect in ab.o

    I have been poking around net and a couple of guys have same problem I had, but no solution has been posted.

    Can anyone help? thanks a lot!

    Could you tell me which version of apache you are trying to install ? 2.2.8 still has issues with SSL.

    Thanks for mailing. There is an issue with Leopard and Apache 2.2.8, more about that here: and the bug: In short it has to do with the libtool.

    The config.log you send is trying to reference the include files in the /usr directory and finds the default installation. If you change the location of the openssl stuff in the ./configure statement you might be able to solve the issue.

    Let me know how you get on.

    The openssl in macport management has been annoying and it's the same version with the openssl that comes with Leopard. The only reason I have it
    is that macport needed it to build an outdated wget. I've uninstalled both of them and build the latest wget to /usr/local, so the 'which openssl' returns the original

    I have modified the --with-ssl part to '--with-ssl=/usr/include/openssl \' , and the make part is successful. Before I start sudo make install and work on the buggy SSL,
    I want to thank you for your help.

    Besides, I have emailed the new config.log to your email just in case.

    When I type in make it gives me this error at the end
    make[3]: *** [] Error 1
    make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
    make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
    make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

    does any one know how to fix this?
