If you downloaded the binaries, what are you trying to build?

If you want to build this yourself, you need the OpenSSL headers too so you
probably need some kind of dev/source package for it.

When configure as run, open "config.log" in your text editor, search for
OpenSSL and check exactly what tests that were run and why they failed and try
to adjust.

But as I said, you need the include files as well as the libs for OpenSSL to
be used when libcurl is built. Also, configure's --with-ssl option identifies
a path to an OpenSSL installation, not to a binary.
