<snip> if you dont want SNMP bits, dont use PERL, dont
use database systems to hold data etc then dont worry about these
warnings - they are pretty much self-evident.

then you run it and....

ah. you have build-essentials package and thus 'make' command - but
that is running a script which calls 'openssl' itself - which you dont
appear to have installed - you have libssl-dev and libssl - which
are the support functions, you need the actual tool.

apt-get install openssl

this is a special type of EAP. if you want to use TNC or IKEv2
(very few people do) then you need to install the relevant libraries...
usually from the developers CVS/GIT repository as these things arent
usually in a distro repository!
