Hi folks,

It's my first time installing erlang, and I am having some issues with it
finding ssl.  I am on ubuntu 16

i have libssl-dev installed

/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libssl.so

But when I run kerl i see that it can't find any of the libs.  It also
can't find any of the executables


$ javac -version

javac 1.8.0_102


$ fop -v

FOP Version 2.1

any ideas?


kerl command below:

$ KERL_CONFIGURE_DISABLE_APPLICATIONS=odbc
KERL_CONFIGURE_OPTIONS="--enable-dirty-schedulers --disable-hipe
--with-openssl" kerl build 19.0 erlang.19.0.dirty_sched.no_hipe.ssl
