The config.log file doesn't seem to be attached to your email.  Could you
please send it to me privately?  I'll also need the following information:

    (1)	What release of NetBSD are you running (uname -a)?

    (2)	What are the contents of /etc/mk.conf, if any?

    (3)	What are the contents of the following two directories?

	(3a) pkgsrc/security/openssh/work/.buildlink/include
	(3b) pkgsrc/security/openssh/work/.buildlink/lib

    (4)	What is the result of "pkg_info openssl"?
