openssl/Configure --prefix=/usr/local installs the .h files in /usr/local/include/openssl/ and on 64bit systems the libraries in /usr/local/lib64 .  Most other packackages put their libraries in /usr/local/lib, so PHP_LIBDIR is /usr/local/lib .

./configure --with-openssl=/usr/local does:

if test "$PHP_OPENSSL_DIR" = "yes"; then
  PHP_OPENSSL_DIR="/usr/local/ssl /usr/local /usr /usr/local/openssl"

for i in $PHP_OPENSSL_DIR; do
  if test -r $i/include/openssl/evp.h; then
  if test -r $i/$PHP_LIBDIR/libssl.a -o -r $i/$PHP_LIBDIR/libssl.$SHLIB_SUFFIX_NAME; then
  test -n "$OPENSSL_INCDIR" && test -n "$OPENSSL_LIBDIR" && break

meaning that is does not check for /usr/local/lib64/libssl.(a,so) and the detection for openssl always fails, if the paths are considers whenre openssl installs itself by default.

This happens in configure four times (on lines 18413, 31988 and 42880 and 94001).

Faced on RH 6.8 with openssl 1.0.2 or 1.1
PHP version 7.2.1 (latest as of date of post)

As of PHP 7.4.0, the OpenSSL configuration relies on pkg-config,
so this issue should be resolved.
