actually, that's not the hard way -- there's no other way to do it if
you're cross-compiling. you can cross-compile openssl on your build
system, but you certainly can't do a "make install" since it's
meaningless to install that on your *build* system. in effect, you
have to leave the results of the openssl build where they are, and
somehow tell curl how to go find them. i see no other way to do it

i tried that as well, and it also didn't work -- the configure step
complained that it couldn't find an openssl installation. but
assuming that *is* the way to go, what would you supply as a
"--with-ssl" argument? remember, the libs and the headers are not in
the same location, so a single argument to --with-ssl is not going to
