kermit built against incorrect openssl

Asked by John Bradshaw on 2012-07-20

ckermit.deb is build against an older version of openssl (1.0.0e)

Current version of openssl is 1.0.1-4ubuntu5.2

john@opti:~$ /usr/bin/kermit
?OpenSSL libraries do not match required version:
  . C-Kermit built with OpenSSL 1.0.0e 6 Sep 2011
  . Version found OpenSSL 1.0.1 14 Mar 2012
  OpenSSL versions prior to 1.0.0 must be the same.
  Set LD_LIBRARY_PATH for OpenSSL 1.0.0e 6 Sep 2011.
  Or rebuild C-Kermit from source on this computer to make versions agree.
  C-Kermit makefile target: linux+krb5+openssl
  Or if that is what you did then try to find out why
  the program loader (image activator) is choosing a
  different OpenSSL library than the one specified in the build.

  All SSL/TLS features disabled.
