Ouch.  So the search order for includes does not match the search
order for libraries.

You could make the search order match, but then you have a 50/50
chance of getting the proper libs.

I would just specify the include and library search orders so you
get the right one.

	CFLAGS = "-I/ssl_dir -L/lib_dir"
