BIND 9.5.1-P3 compilation problems.

Good morning,

I've conducted two maintenance windows to upgrade our BIND primary 
server to the new code to address the recent security vulnerability, but 
cannot get past the error below. I have Openssl 9.8.0k installed. I have 
no problems running tests from the openssl prompt. I have tried 
exporting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include the /usr/local/ssl directory 
and have run the compilation with the --with-openssl=/usr/local/ssl 
switch to no avail.

I am running Solaris 10 Sparc -

I know that there is a precompiled version of this BIND release on 
Sunfreeware, but I am trying to upgrade our primary nameserver and would 
rather to this than a clean uninstall/install.

Is there any insight into what wall I'm running into?
