Hi -

Trying to configure’s build with this command:
./configure --with-libevent-dir=/usr/local/lib --with-openssl-dir=/usr/local/openssl/

fails with:
checking for libevent directory... configure: WARNING: We found the libraries for libevent, but we could not find the C header files.  You may need to install a devel package.
configure: WARNING: On most Redhat-based systems, you can get headers for libevent by installing the libevent-devel RPM package
configure: error: Missing headers; unable to proceed.

whereas this worked (and still works) when being issued against’s source code

I have libevent-devel (and libevent-headers) installed on my system - and have been building tor on the system for many years now.

Does this ring a bell with anyone?
