Installing OpenSSL_0.9.8k on AIX 5.3

I uncompressed and untar the file with no issues.  
Then ran, # . /config --prefix=/usr/opt/OpenSSL_0.9.8k(directory where I want the install to go)
Then ran # make
Then I got the following error:
cc: unrecognized option '-qthreaded'
cc: unrecognized option '-q32'
cc: unrecognized option '-qmaxmem=16384'
cc: unrecognized option '-qro'
cc: unrecognized option '-qroconst'
cc: error trying to exec 'cc1plus': execvp: No such file or directory
make: 1254-004 The error code from the last command is 1.

Stop.
make: 1254-004 The error code from the last command is 1.

hi,
this was a your choice to retrieve source and compile them ?
The compiler you use (under symbolic name cc),
it may be gcc or AIX c++, seems not recognize qthreaded options.
Are not you able to download instalp format of SSH/SSL,
it's easier !

I need the most updated verison of OpenSSL, which is OpenSSL_0.9.8k.  I cannot find the installp format of this version.  All I found on IBM website was an older verison, but I have to follow a cert which is to get the most updated one form openssl.org.  Do you know if there is one formatted for easier install?

hi,
I followed
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/pseries/v5r3/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.aix.security/doc/security/openssh.htm

then

http://sourceforge.net/projects/openssh-aix.

then

https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/preLogin.do?source=aixbp

(I have an IBM account)
choosen OpenSSL
Version  0.9.8.x

then OpenSSL Install images V0.9.8.802 for AIX 5.3 and AIX 6.1

the readme inside says:
OpenSSL 0.9.8.802 with Security Patches for AIX 5.3 and 6.1
OpenSSL 0.9.8.802 addresses the following security bug fixes for 9.8h version of OpenSSL.
...

probably you have already these and you look for 9.8k that seems "better" than 9.8h
or this may go for you ?

I need 0.9.8k.  I have .9.8i right now, which is the fix for 9.8h.  This is going to be a problem for me.  I guess I will check and see whats wrong with my compiler.

Thanks

Hi,
I guess you're using gcc and are missing the g++ package. Also try  GNU make instead of  AIX's make.

g++ for gcc:
ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/aix/freeSoftware/aixtoolbox/RPMS/ppc/gcc/gcc-cplusplus-4.2.0-3.aix5.3.ppc.rpm

GNU make:
ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/aix/freeSoftware/aixtoolbox/RPMS/ppc/make/make-3.80-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm

Cheers

... threaded, maxmem and so on are options for xlC, not gcc.
I think that configure somehow decided to use xlC, whereas make tries to use gcc.
So tell configure to use gcc ('./configure [options] CC=gcc') and see if it helps.

And, as I wrote above, you are missing 'g++', and it's always a good idea to use GNU make wth gcc.
