And you did 'make install' after 'make'?

Did the libs end up in $HOME/lib and there is a new directory named 'openssl'
in your $HOME/include directory?

This should be correct, yes.

Eh, as you can see on this command line you didn't use $HOME when this log
was recorded. This obviously had "/home/USERID/modules/openssl-0.9.6b"
specified, and you didn't install OpenSSL with that prefix.
