Bug #26969 compiler can't find libcrypto / libssl when linking

gcc 3.2.1, Sun's ld ( /usr/css/bin/ld ).

When building the openssl extension as a shared module, "configure" doesn't populate OPENSSL_SHARED_LIBADD properly - the elements are reversed, and the libraries can't be found when building.  From "Makefile"..

OPENSSL_SHARED_LIBADD = -lssl -lcrypto -R/usr/local/openssl/lib -L/usr/local/openssl/lib

Placing the "-lssl -lcrypto" after the link path seems to fix the problem.  This effects 4.3.4, 4.3.5RC1. It works fine if openssl extension is built statically into the php binary.

4.3.2 builds fine, in either case.  I haven't tried 4.3.3.
