Assuming you also ran 'make install' after that custom openssl build, the curl
configure should look more like this:

  LIBS="-ldl" ./configure --with-ssl=/opt/openssl

The LIBS thing if you only have the static versions.

Always, *always*, when configure fails to do what you want, check config.log
and look for the specific checks and see why they fail. That's usually the
best way to learn what you need to adjust to make it pass.

I doubt a mail from 2002 is relevant. Everything is different now.
