a user of Gentoo Linux reported the following bug via our bug tracker:
<URL:http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=231468>.  Summary is:

Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.6.3 [source] [smp:4] [async-threads:0]

Eshell V5.6.3  (abort with ^G)
1> crypto:start().
sh: line 0: exec: crypto_drv: not found

We set SSL_DYNAMIC to yes duing build to have the system's libraries
used for linking.  Unfortunately this does not work.  

$ ldd /usr/lib/erlang/lib/crypto-1.5.2/priv/lib/crypto_drv.so
        linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0x5376b000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x535b4000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x5376c000)

For his config.log file see the mentioned bug report.  Thanks for your
