Currently the built package is not installable, as it tries to install some dependecies in /usr/lib64 which leads to a conflict in Arch.

Patching CMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR into the configure File fixed this for me.

Patch (apply with git patch after checking out the repository):

Should be fixed now. Looks like they added more OpenSSL version checks which link against the wrong version of libcrypto.

The fix discussed below doesn't work on x86_64. openssl-1.0 is installed.

Gives the following error:

CMake Error at cmake/OpenSSLTests.cmake:38 (message):
  OpenSSL 1.1 is not supported yet; please use OpenSSL 1.0
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  CMakeLists.txt:196 (include)

Libs installed:

[Torxed@archlinux ~]$ pacman -Q | grep openssl
lib32-openssl 1:1.1.0.h-1
openssl 1.1.0.h-1
openssl-1.0 1.0.2.o-1

Is it because you're looking for 1.0.0 but when in fact 1.0.2 is installed? Not entirely sure this is actually what's going on, but a quick glance that's why.

Thanks for pointing this out. Fixed temporarily until openssl-1.1 support is added.

Bro does not support openssl-1.1 (

installing openssl-1.0 and adding:

sed -i "/^append_cache_entry DISABLE_RUBY_BINDINGS BOOL true$/a\
append_cache_entry OPENSSL_CRYPTO_LIBRARY FILEPATH /usr/lib64/\n\
append_cache_entry OPENSSL_INCLUDE_DIR PATH /usr/include/openssl-1.0\n\
append_cache_entry OPENSSL_SSL_LIBRARY FILEPATH /usr/lib64/" configure

before the the call to configure fixed this issue for me.
