configure with ssl in non-standard location failing

When I run configure I get the following errors:

configure: WARNING: SSL disabled, you will not be able to use HTTPS,
FTPS, NTLM and more.
configure: WARNING: Use --with-ssl, --with-gnutls, --with-polarssl,
--with-cyassl, --with-nss, --with-axtls, --with-winssl, or
--with-darwinssl to address this.
configure: WARNING: libpsl was not found
configure: WARNING: Cannot find libraries for IDN support: IDN disabled

My configure command is:
./configure --prefix=$HOME/apps/$CURL --with-ssl=$HOME/apps/openssl

I've also tried prepending LDFLAGS="-L$HOME/apps/openssl/lib" but get
the same result.

In the configure output I get:

configure: PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR will be set to
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for openssl options with pkg-config... found
configure: pkg-config: SSL_LIBS: "-lssl -lcrypto "
configure: pkg-config: SSL_LDFLAGS:

configure: pkg-config: SSL_CPPFLAGS:

I'm not sure what the problem with SSL is?
