I used to work, apparantly :-)

I was just going to change the meaning of --with-sslinc to point to the
actual include dir, and add a --with-ssllib for the lib directory, with
the defaults pointing to the RedHat defaults.  (Now its shipped standard
more people have it there than in /usr/local/openssl in any case).

Its the configure test that fails, somthing to do with our use of 64 bit
interfaces.  Simply redefining the approrpirate macro in config.h fixes
it.  Futhermore I think its fixed in their security errata for glibc
root exploits.

What I really want to see, if you don't mind, is the local-mode changes
to smbpasswd so I can start automated testing, and verify this.  Moving
across the torture changes would also help.
