Or there are some other parameters that conflict with it. Show the gcc
command line when compiling ssl-proxy-openssl.c and when linking
imap-login binary? If there is -I/usr/include that could explain it..

I've answered this many times. In short: I don't like that style. Not as
a programmer and not as a user when compiling other programs. It makes
too many assumptions and guesses.

Oh, right, v1.2 and not v2.0. So libssl was linked statically to
imap-login, I guess? That explains why there were so many matches to the
strings grep.
