If I remember correctly, OpenSSL installs under /usr/local/ssl by
default.  Wget, on the other hand, tries to be a decent citizen and
first attempt to look for libraries in the standard locations, where
"standard" means whatever is in the compiler's include/library search
path.  To quote configure.in:

    dnl OpenSSL's root was not specified, so we have to guess.  First
    dnl try the system default location, then "/usr/local/ssl" (where
    dnl OpenSSL installs by default), then "/usr/local" (traditional
    dnl choice for installation root), then "/opt".
    ssl_all_roots="system-default /usr/local/ssl /usr/local /opt"

You can specify OpenSSL root with `--with-ssl=ROOT'.  For example,
`./configure --with-ssl=/usr/local/ssl' will prefer the libraries in
/usr/local/ssl/lib and includes in /usr/local/ssl/include over any

That almost confirms my suspicion.  I'm guessing that Wget links with
an older libssl.so (because they're in the compiler's library search
path), but finds the includes from the newer version (because those
are the only SSL includes on the system, and they're in the compiler's
include path).

Please try using `./configure --with-ssl=/usr/local' or `./configure
--with-ssl=/usr/local/ssl' and see if the problem goes away.
