This procedure works fine for years on RH/CentOS 3+
The current machine is a core 2 duo with x86_64 CentOS 4.4 (updated)

Compile, make and install openssl in /usr/local/openssl
configure mod_ssl for apache 1.3.37
configure apache using
SSL_BASE=/usr/local/openssl SSL_INCDIR=/usr/local/openssl/include 
SSL_LIBDIR=/usr/local/openssl/lib ./configure --with-layout=Apache 
--prefix=/usr/local/apache --enable-module=most --enable-shared=max 

make dies here:
gcc -L/usr/local/openssl/lib -shared  -o libssl.so mod_ssl.lo 
ssl_engine_config.lo ssl_engine_compat.lo ssl_engine_ds.lo 
ssl_engine_dh.lo ssl_engine_init.lo ssl_engine_kernel.lo 
ssl_engine_rand.lo ssl_engine_io.lo ssl_engine_log.lo

It seems there's something wrong with mod_ssl on 64bit OS, but yet I see 
RPM's that claim to work (haven't tried).  I have googled for hours but 
haven't found anything helpful.  Anyone out there familiar with this 
issue and it's resolve?
