Indeed.. I (wrongly) assumed the openssl rpm had renamed the
/usr/local/ssl/include directory to /usr/include/openssl... It is in fact
the /usr/local/ssl/include/openssl directory, so the whole -I line is

(provided you installed the rpm, or another package that places the
include/libs in the same spot ;)
