Try --with-openssl without any argument and see if configure finds your
OpenSSL installation location by itself.  If not, use the pathname
to the directory where the libraries, header files, etc. are located.
The directory you supplied is the one where the openssl program is
located, which isn't what configure wants.

To see what kinds of things configure is looking for, pull it into
an editor and sure for "openssl".  You'll see which directories
it looks at trying to determine your OpenSSL installation location.
