    recipe linking with openssl failed


      could someone tell me why this error message appears?


      | checking for OpenSSL library... using OpenSSL from /home/build/yocto/build/tmp/sysroots/edison/usr/lib/../lib and /home/build/yocto/build/tmp/sysroots/edison/usr/lib/../include

      | Please check the argument to --with-openssl and your

      | shared library configuration (e.g., LD_LIBRARY_PATH).

      | WARNING: exit code 1 from a shell command


      openssl header files are located in /home/build/yocto/build/tmp/sysroots/edison/user/include/openssl


      if the path to openssl would be wrong i would have a different error message


      the source does not use autotools or cmake


      i assume the reason is related to cross compiling because if i compile the source on edison it works like a charm...
