Unfortunately it does seem that stunnel-5.x is not available through

To compile programs that use a library, you need not only the library
files themselves, but also the so-called header files that describe for
the compiler what functions and data types are defined and used in
the library. Most Linux distributions keep these files in a separate
package, e.g. on CentOS 6 for OpenSSL there is the "openssl" package
that contains the libraries themselves and then there is "openssl-devel"
with the header files. Try installing the openssl-devel package and
rerunning the stunnel configure script; it should be able to pick up
the OpenSSL header files without any special --with-ssl options,
it knows where to look for the most common installation directories.
Hope that helps!
