0509-036 Cannot load program ssh because of the following errors: Dependent module /usr/local/ssl/lib/libcrypto.a(libcrypto.so) could not be loaded.

I installed openssh without any problem, but when I invoked either ssh/sshd, it started giving error ..

> ssh
exec(): 0509-036 Cannot load program ssh because of the following errors:
0509-150 Dependent module /usr/local/ssl/lib/libcrypto.a(libcrypto.so) could not be loaded.
0509-152 Member libcrypto.so is not found in archive

Initially I thought it is openssl version mismatch and re-installed forcefully openssh from rpm, but it didn't solve this problem.

Later I thought of analyzing library /usr/local/ssl/lib/libcrypto.a
Step 1) Copy the libcrypto.a to a temporary directory
Step 2) Extract files in the archive libcrypto.a
ar -xv ./libcrypto.a
Step 3) ls
libcrypto.a libcrypto.so.0 libcrypto.so.0.9.7
I found here that there is no shared library named libcrypto.so. So I thought of creating one
Step 4) cp libcrypto.so.0 libcrypto.so
Step 5) ls
libcrypto.a libcrypto.so libcrypto.so.0 libcrypto.so.0.9.7
Step 6) Append the newly created library libcrypto.so to archive libcrypto.a
ar -qv ./libcrypto.a libcrypto.so
Step 7) copy the newly created archive to desired location
cp ./libcrypto.a /usr/local/ssl/lib/libcrypto.a

Thats it .... my problem got fixed
