pkg-config is picking up flags tha point to
/home/djeyewater/apps/openssl-1.0.2e as the installed location of your openssl
package. If that's not correct, then make sure the environment variable
PKG_CONFIG_PATH is pointing to the directory containing the correct openssl.pc
file. Read the INSTALL file to see how this is done.
