the centos repos only have 6.3.17, but i want the latest version of 6.3.26. I tried installing it from source code from here but as i was doing ./configure, i was seeing warnings that OpenSSL was not recognized. So as per the warning instructions, i reconfigured useing the ./configure --with-ssl command to include the ssl support. After make, then make install, im not sure the install went correctly because after a rpm -qi fetchmail, it shows its not installed.

i found an updated repo here but its for OPENSUSE, not a Centos build.

here is the output from the source code compile and install.
