    FC1 - program compiling - openssl c_rehash error


    I'm trying to ./configure a program, but I get this error:

    configure: WARNING: Unable to locate OpenSSL's c_rehash script in the current
    configure: WARNING: PATH. The c_rehash script is included in the OpenSSL
    configure: WARNING: package but may not be installed on your system. Please
    configure: WARNING: install the c_rehash script from OpenSSL and rerun this
    configure: WARNING: configure script.
    configure: error: openssl found but c_rehash was not found.
    configure: error: /bin/sh './configure' failed for rootcerts

    I've looked at some of the documentation for openssl and even updated the program, but I can't figure out how to just install c_rehash.

    Thanks for any help you all can give.

    Fix for the missing c_rehash program in FC1, FC2, and FC3

    I had the same problem with FC3 when trying to configure another program for install. I fixed the program by downloading and installing the src rpm for the current version of openssl that was installed on my system. I decompressed the tar.bz2 file, changed into the openssl src directory, and then the tools sub-directory. From there I ran the following command:
    make -f Makefile.ssl INSTALLTOP=/usr MISC_APPS= install
    This compiled and installed c_rehash to /usr/bin and solved the problem without having to re-compile openssl.
