Issue #863 has been updated by Brian Candler.


And I've also just got the same successful result with ruby-1.8.7-p72 on the same platform.

./configure --program-suffix=187
make
sudo mv /usr/local/lib/ruby /usr/local/lib/rubyxx
sudo make install

$ irb187
irb(main):001:0> RUBY_VERSION
=> "1.8.7"
irb(main):002:0> require 'openssl'
=> true
irb(main):003:0> OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_PEER
=> 1

(I'm not sure if there is a clean way to install 1.8.7 alongside 1.8.6. I see ./configure --help shows how to relocate the vendor_ruby and site_ruby directories, but I can't see the same for RUBY_LIB)
