Actually, the way that I did it on my older RedHat boxes was:

     ./config --prefix=/usr --openssldir=/usr

The OpenSSL package does not actually use "configure" but it has a
"config" and a "Configure" (confusingly)

However, for users who already have OpenSSL installed, it might not
be ideal to have to remove and reinstall it from source to get tn5250
working.  (To say nothing about the apps that are already using it)

So, I think maybe we should make tn5250 find openssl in it's default
location.   What confuses me is that the Makefile for openssl clearly
installs it's libraries into /usr/local/ssl/lib, yet I'm hearing that
everyone has them in /usr/lib.   So, I'm not sure what to think :)
