Yes, I can confirm that OpenSSL is indeed libssl-dev.

I'm on Kali Linux 2.0 Machine.

Yes, I've checked the configure script output. and the checking for OpenSLL support is just fine.
Also just fine for the headers of openssl. If you want to I can attach the file with the output.

I'm using this specific version because, I'm taking a Master Degree 
in Computer Science and, I need for my thesis a patch that is only available for this version.

No, OpenSSL (which probably is libssl-dev - what O/S is this?)

The configure script output will tell you whether it found the SSL
libraries or not.

You shouldn't be building version 2.1.12. It's obsolete.

If you *really* need version 2, build 2.2.9, otherwise go for
3.0.11. Version 2 is end of life and no longer supported.
