I didn't realize you still had problems with this.

Is that zlib path the prefix of that zlib installation? I mean, is appending
include and lib the correct thing to do to find the header and the lib?

That's what the configure script does to check.

Right, that's how it is supposed to work. Good that some things do as they're
meant at least! ;-)

The ssl check hasn't been modified since 7.10 so it should work quite the
same as before! ;-)

That check does about the same operation like the zlib one, it prepends the
given prefix to "lib" to check for the lib and "include/openssl" (*) to check
for the headers. How are the ssl headers/libs stored in your given ssl prefix
"/home/etxbwir/openssl" ?

Checking out your config.log and seeing how the failed checks look like might
give some clues.

(*) = it also appends just "include" to the given prefix in fact, as that was
      how to find SSLeay and early OpenSSL headers.
