Re: Problem in compiling LIBCURL in Solaris

Hello all,

We are facing some problems in compiling latest libcurl in solaris.
It would be great if you provide some hints to get around the problem. I have described the problem description below

Problem Description:
The libcurl library is not getting compiled in Solaris server.

I am trying to include FTPS (FTP over SSL) functionality in one of our application. The application is already using libcurl library for transferring files. Current libcurl we are using doesn't support FTPS. Hence, I downloaded latest libcurl code and openssl code for compilation. In AIX, I am able to build libcurl library with OpenSSL enabled. But, in Solaris server, the command fails to pick up OpenSSL library.

The configure script throws following error:
configure: WARNING: SSL disabled, you will not be able to use HTTPS, FTPS, NTLM and more.
configure: WARNING: Use --with-ssl or --with-gnutls to address this.

The complete command for configure is: ./configure --with-ssl="/home/parthiv/openssl-0.9.8b".

Could you provide some suggestion to successfully compile libcurl in solaris.
