The configure command for libssh2 specifies --with-openssl. This seems to be all that is needed for building earlier versions of Libcurl with ssh support.

openssl is in /usr/bin/

That's more or less what I figured the error message was saying.

I'm afraid I don't understand what this means. LD_LIBRARY_PATH seems to be a Linux environment variable, and I don't have /etc/ on my machine.

I'm also not sure what you mean by "run the command" - is this the configure command or the application that is using Libcurl?

What I'm trying to do is to build Libcurl as a static library that can be used by a Mac application. I've previously built Libcurl 7.21.1 and 7.19.4 without encountering this problem. We're currently using 7.19.4, and I'm trying to update to the most recent version.

Does 7.27.0 require additional libraries that aren't needed by earlier versions?
