Could we see all the configure arguments pretty please?

Works for me with current 2.2.x HEAD

Cyassl is the name of the C library.

No. The server has no explicit support for CyaSSL. They claim to have an OpenSSL compatibility layer, you should be able to use it by specifying:

  --with-openssl-includes=DIR      Directory to look for OpenSSL include files
  --with-openssl-libraries=DIR     Directory to look for OpenSSL library files
