I used this script for so long there may have been a bug in detecting
it or something at the time.

just took it out and

Configuration summary
  + using system PCRE library
  + using system OpenSSL library
  + md5: using OpenSSL library
  + sha1 library is not used
  + using system zlib library

seems to be good still. cool, thanks :)

Typically things do find libs properly on their own, I always try to
run it that way first. So for some reason along the way I wound up
having to force it.
