How to find out missing libraries for curl

Hi there,

I currentlystuck in configure curl V. 7.38 on the SLES11-SP3 - kernel
3.0.101-0.31; need some assistance - plz help!
configure --with-libssh2=/usr/lib64/ --with-sftp --enable-proxy
--enable-SFTP=YES --with-libidn=/usr/lib64/ --enable-debug --with-gnutls

In config.log I can see:
configure:21032: checking if GSS-API support is requested
configure:21163: result: no
configure:21232: checking whether to enable Windows native SSL/TLS
(Windows native builds only)
configure:21254: result: no
configure:21270: checking whether to enable iOS/Mac OS X native SSL/TLS
configure:21286: result: no
configure:21328: PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR will be set to "/usr/lib64/lib/pkgconfig"
configure:21540: checking for CRYPTO_lock in -lcrypto
configure:21562: gcc -o conftest -O2 -Wno-system-headers
-I/usr/lib64/include -I/usr/lib64/include/openssl -L/usr/lib64/lib
conftest.c -lcrypto -lz -lrt >&5
cannot find -lcrypto
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

How can I find out which libraries are missing - what exactly is:
"lcrypto" ?
And why PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR will be set to "/usr/lib64/lib/pkgconfig"? How
can I change it?


Best regards
