I thought I would post to the group my solution for updating OpenSSL w/o
having to rebuild the entire machine...
# tar xzf openssl-0.9.7d.tar.gz
# cd openssl-0.9.7d
# ./config --prefix=/usr --openssldir=/etc/ssl
# make test
# make install
..this seems to correctly place all the files where they need to be with
the exception of a few. I did recompile a few apps since they had ldd to
older files that were incorrect.
The problem is that I build most things from tarballs and overwrite alot of
the base install binaries....so if I did this fix the 'correct' way, I
would have quite a mess on my hands.
