Installation problem with openssh-6.8 on Centos 5.11



Asking you please to help me with openssh instalation on Centos 5.1

I am trying to install openssh release openssh-6.8 on my OS.

The reason for the ssh upgrade is due to security issues.

I am using following steps during ssh installation:

1. cd /usr/src

2. wget http://mirror.team-cymru.org/pub/OpenBS ... 8p1.tar.gz

3. tar -xvzf openssh-6.8p1.tar.gz

4. yum install rpm-build gcc make wget openssl-devel krb5-devel pam-devel libX11-devel xmkmf libXt-devel

5. mkdir -p /root/rpmbuild/{SOURCES,SPECS}

6. cp ./openssh-6.8p1/contrib/redhat/openssh.spec /root/rpmbuild/SPECS/

7. cp openssh-6.8p1.tar.gz /root/rpmbuild/SOURCES/

8. cd /root/rpmbuild/SPECS

9. sed -i -e "s/%define no_gnome_askpass 0/%define no_gnome_askpass 1/g" openssh.spec

sed -i -e "s/%define no_x11_askpass 0/%define no_x11_askpass 1/g" openssh.spec

sed -i -e "s/BuildPreReq/BuildRequires/g" openssh.spec

10. rpmbuild -bb openssh.spec

I am receiving the following error :

checking whether getpgrp requires zero arguments... yes

ch0ecking OpenSSL header version... 0090802f (OpenSSL 0.9.8e-rhel5 01 Jul 2008)

checking OpenSSL library version... configure: error: OpenSSL >= 0.9.8f required (have "0090802f (OpenSSL 0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 01 Jul 2008)")

error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.62496 (%build)

I know that openssh-6.8 will work without any issue on Centos 6.x OS but my aplication cannot run on release 6.x OS.

Please advice,

I am realy need your help!!!
