./configure --with-ssl

Some detail is missing, but the -I/usr/kerberos/include sounds like a broken
configuration which appeared first in Fedora.  I used to work around this
as indicated in this note:  
rh90's openssl relies on /usr/kerberos (should I add to configure?)
        export LIBS="-L$KRB/lib -lssl -lcrypto -lgssapi_krb5 -lkrb5 -lk5crypto 
        export CPPFLAGS="-I$KRB/include -I/usr/include/openssl"
        export CFLAGS="-O -g $CPPFLAGS"
        cfg-lynx $*
Later I found that the pkg-config script almost worked, and last changed the
configure script to work around _that_ in 2.8.8dev.3:

2010-04-25 (2.8.8dev.3)
* add workaround in CF_SSL configure macro for broken openssl pkg-config script
  on Redhat, CentOS -TD

(2.8.8dev.14 is current - a small number of bugs/improvements have been reported
against that)
