That is not a (plain) OpenSSL package. Get a proper one. They're all named in
the style: "openssl-VERSION.tar.gz" where VERSION is 0.9.6b in the most
recent OpenSSL package. You'll find them from

When you've unpacked it, run './config' and then 'make' and 'make install'.

If you'd rather install OpenSSL in your home directory, as you don't have
root access, then run the config like this instead:

 ./config --prefix=$HOME

and the others like explained above.

After it is installed, you can make curl's configure script find it by
using it like this:

 ./configure --with-ssl=$HOME
