Ok, these are two issues. The first is that apparently the config script
already figures out that the system is 64bit, but for some reason
insists on 32bit anyway unless explicitly specified. I don't consider
this to be a good practice, but there is already a patch, as you

This patch only works together with this one, which you also mentioned:

Ian - I cannot test this patch easily. However, 342 looks fine and 339
should only make sure not to error/warn if CCTK_POINTER_SIZE isn't
defined (wrap it in ""). I would apply both patches if either of you
agrees to test them soonish.

This is the other, unrelated problem. It should have an effect, namely
it shouldn't even try to build OpenSSL within Cactus. Can you send the
log from the config-stage of Cactus? Of particular interest are lines

OpenSSL selected, but OPENSSL_DIR not set. Checking some places...
Building OpenSSL...

Be sure to do reconfigure your configuration with the new optionfile.

I believe it hasn't been applied yet.
