[erlang-questions] Issues with Erlang Build under SUSE SLES 11 SP 1 on S390

Dear colleagues, 

 When including SSL support, I'm still having an issue during the build of 
Erlang from the source under SUSE SLES 11 SP1 S390 platform. The error 
remains in the Erlang crypto module (openssl) and relates to a missing 
-fPIC compiler flag.  I've tried to set the following flags to force the 
-fPIC flag. 

export CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -fPIC"
export CXXFLAGS="$CXXFLAGS -fPIC"
export CC="gcc -fPIC"

The -fPIC flag shows shows up in the previous gcc executions, but in this 
step it gets overwritten by the -shared option. Is there any option that 
configures the compile of the crypto module, or a place where I could 
modify this argument?       

make

I suppose you can pass --with-ssl-lib=SSL_LIBRARY_PATH and 
--with-ssl-include=SSL_INCLUDE_PATH.

And, yes, there should be libopenssl-devel under SuSE.

Dear colleagues, 

Thanks, for the quick reply. The issue with the crypto.c  clearly relates 
to OpenSSL. Unfortunately an openssl-devel package is not available from 
Novell SUSE.  I've downloaded the latest source packages of Kerberos 5 
(MIT) and as well as OpenSSL. Remains some doubts how to use the 
configuration arguments described in the Erlang install process 

--with-ssl=PATH - Specify location of OpenSSL include and lib 

Is there an example how to setup this PATH?   

Questions: 

1  - What exactly goes into the PATH argument of with-ssl= ? Is there an 
example how to use it?   

2  - Why does the /configure shell search for the krb5.h only under the 
location of  /usr/include   

Those are the locations generated by Kerberos5:   
    /usr/local/include/krb5.h 
    /usr/local/include/krb5/krb5.h 

and for the openssl package 
    /usr/local/ssl/bin/openssl 
    /usr/local/ssl/include/openssl 

3. Any modules need to be placed under /usr/include (default path of 
 ./configure) ? 

Thanks in advance for your support to add crypto (ssl) suport to Erlang. 

Regards, 
Claude

Hi,

I suppose you need to install OpenSSL-dev (from the error it looks like 
you are missing some OpenSSL headers).

Dear colleagues, 

 I'm compiling an Erlang  environment under the SUSE SLES 11 SP1 on a S390 
platform building it from the source. I'm facing an error condition when 
adding the support for OpenSSL and Erlang "crypto" support using the 
following configuration: 

./configure --with-ssl --with-ssl=/usr/lib64/openssl 

The configure completes normal, but the subsequent "make" step throws a 
sequence of errors like this: 
..

make: *** [libs] Error 2 
.. 

 Without OpenSSL support, the Erlang package compiles successfully and 
I've tested it with the console prompt. 
Thanks in advance for your hints how to fix this issue with the crypto 
module.
