Cannot install rdektop, Couldn't find your OpenSSL..

Hi there, I'm running Fedora core 3.
When running command './configure' to install my new  rdesktop-1.4.0.tar.gz it returns errors at the end of the line:
..
..
checking for OpenSSL directory... Not found

Couldn't find your OpenSSL library installation dir
Use --with-openssl option to fix this problem

I try to use with options : './configure --with-openssl' but the errors is show again. I try to 'locate' where is the directory of my open ssl and found it in /usr/bin/openssl and i try to use the command ./configure --with-openssl=/usr/bin, the errors show again. I'll try to check my rpm packets 'openssl' and is already installed (when i check with my cd)

What could b the prob. ?

Note:
I can't connect to xp using my current rdektop. The errors is:

"The version of rdesktop you are using (1.3.1) is too old:
  rdesktop 1.3.2 or greater is required. A working patch for rdesktop 1.3.1 can be found in KDE CVS."

How to install or upgrade it from previous version?

Appart from the above suggestions, your version of rdesktop will work if you start it from a terminal session and not from the GUI.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

i cant understand that. What GUI, the author never mentioned a GUI interface.

Gnome or KDE, there is a "Remote Desktop Applet" which helps adding the correct parameters etc. If I use that applet to connect to a TS on my FC3 box, I get the same error message. Yet, if I start rdesktop from a Terminal and add all the parameters by hand, I don't get that error.

However, the rdesktop version he's trying to install is better and newer than the currently installed version and there are some new additions, mainly those which allows you to use local resources (sound, diskspace, printers etc) during the TS sessions. So it makes good sense to install the new version. Also the GUI applet won't show the above error, that way...

Install the latest openssl. download http://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-0.9.7g.tar.gz and install it in /usr/local/ssl (./configure --prefix=/usrl/local/ssl)
Then try to install the rdesktop latest from http://www.rdesktop.org. while compiling the source give: ./configure --with-openssl=/usr/local/ssl
It should work.
