[stunnel-users] SSL Libraries on Debian

I tried compiling Stunnel on Debian and get an error -- I need the ssl 
libraries.  I tried ./configure --with-ssl=/usr/lib/ssl, which is where 
libssl-dev was installed, and it doesn't help.  There is a libssl file 
in /usr/lib, but --with-ssl=/usr/lib/ssl doesn't seem to work either.  
What package on Debian provides the needed headers (according to 
aptitude, libssl-dev, the one I installed, does, but experience is 
telling me otherwise).

(This, btw, is why I am trying to make static binaries -- you can never 
tell what to expect on Linux systems at this point.  Often config/make 
doesn't work and there are many times when packages don't work out for 
one reason or another.)

Thanks for any help on this.
