I need help installing the Bittorrent client CTorrent on my OpenBSD machine. When i run the configure script i get this error:

/usr/tmp/ctorrent-1.3.2> ./configure

configure: error: error, Please install OpenSSL first!

OpenSSL is installed by default on OpenBSD systems but for some reason the configure script can't find it. I've also tried ./configure --libdir=/usr/lib with no luck.

The app can be found @ http://ctorrent.sourceforge.net/?action=started

Any ideas anyone?
Thanks.

Sorry turn123, I've been away for a while and haven't had any time to check for answers the past week. When I didn't get any responses I decided to just forget about installing this application.

I'll reward you with the points anyway, for poiting me in the correct direction. Thanks mate.

Try to modify the "configure" file, replacing "-lssl" to "-lcrypto", then try again.

It worked for me.

Hi,
I have been trying to install ctorrent on openbsd for a while without any progress.
I am keep getting the message:
error: please install openssl first!
provided that openssl is already installed.
I changed the configure file as mentioned here :"changed -lssl to -lcrypto", now i do not get the openssl error message. however, when i run make, i get a bunch of errors:
g++  -g -O2    -o ctorrent  bencode.o bitfield.o  btconfig.o btcontent.o btfiles.o  btrequest.o btstream.o bufio.o  connect_nonb.o ctorrent.o downloader.o  httpencode.o iplist.o peer.o  peerlist.o rate.o setnonblock.o  sigint.o tracker.o  -lcrypto

Stop in /home/rdinoni/new/ctorrent-bigbro (line 197 of Makefile).
