Samba's SSL support (soon to be killed) only works with OpenSSL, not SSLeay 
as in previous versions.

There is little reason for samba to use SSL.  NO windows client supports it, 
and the job is much better done using stunnell and inetd (for the server side,
see the stunnel documentation on how to 'add' SSL to arbitary deamons) and
by using (untested):

LIBSMB_PROG="stunnel -r remote.host:139" smbclient //remote/share

for the client side.
