I am getting the same error trying to run PyPy 2.0b2 binary on Centos 5.8 x64

Additionally I am also having trouble building PyPy 2.0b2 on Centos 5.8. This problem apparently traces to some 
strange libssl errors that fail the build. Here is the end of error log -

[translation:ERROR] 	/usr/lib64/libssl.a(kssl.o): In function `kssl_krb5_free_data_contents':
[translation:ERROR] 	(.text+0x203): undefined reference to `krb5_free_data_contents'
[translation:ERROR] 	collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
[translation:ERROR] 	make: *** [pypy-c] Error 1

To compile with x64 SSL I did modify ropenssl.py to swap /lib/ directories for /lib64/. This fixed the initial SSL 
compatibility error message in the logs but the final make fails with the above message...

Could we clarify once and for all whether version 1.0.0 of openssl is required and 0.9.8 definitely won't work even if 
I build from source? Right now this is not apparent anywhere in the documentation.

Would you recommend trying to install libssl.so.1.0.0 or could it be possible to make source build work with 0.9.8?

release:  -> 2.0
status: wontfix -> chatting
