Description of problem:
Since all I have seen from Red Hat regarding the latest openssl bug was a 
cool "Look at" I did that and compiled the latest 
openssl package 0.9.7a

Comiling and installing went ok without errors. 

The old binary openssl in /usr/bin was renamed and a link called openssl 
created to the new openssl binary (residing at /usr/local/ssl/bin)

Doing $openssl version on the console reports correctly 0.9.7a

By requesting the http server with wget -Sv https://ipadress I still get 
reported that OpenSSL would be version o.9.6b

Bring out a patched openssl package soon which considers all that problems or 
at least bring out some description howto cope that stuff. 
Really, many other way more uniteresting bugs were fixed in a much quicker 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. download openssl 0.9.7a (tar.gz) from
2. compile and install it 
3. rename openssl in /usr/bin
4. set a link to the new openssl at /usr/local/ssl/bin named openssl 
in /usr/bin 
5. make sure your apache is running and configured to answer http/https 
6. ask him with wget -Sv 


Actual Results:  See description

Expected Results:  wget should report openssl version 0.9.7a instead
