It was indeed a late change in July 2021 before the final OpenSSL 3.0.0
Prior to OpenSSL 3.0.0, <prefix>/lib was always used; now it is

Yes, I was using --with-openssl=/home/iulius/work/openssl-3.0.0
Now, I have to use both --with-openssl=/home/iulius/work/openssl-3.0.0
--with-openssl-lib=/home/iulius/work/openssl-3.0.0/lib64 as you say, for
the build to work on Jessie.
On Debian Buster, I see symlinks for /libXX to /usr/libXX
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Jan 8 2021 lib -> usr/lib/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Jan 8 2021 lib32 -> usr/lib32/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Jan 8 2021 lib64 -> usr/lib64/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Jan 8 2021 libx32 -> usr/libx32/
so the build would work fine without --with-openssl-lib
The issue comes with at least (old) Debian Jessie where I have /lib,
/lib64 (with only ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 inside) and /usr/lib (without

Yes, the fix is more complex than suggested in my previous message.
In the GCC C Farm, I for instance see Alpine with /lib and /usr/lib only
but OpenSSL configure sets LIBDIR=lib64
So indeed the current logic when we set LDFLAGS without explicit
--with-xxx-lib=<path> is broken with the new behaviour of OpenSSL
3.0.0... And maybe other software, I do not know.
