    Ah Sorry guys Adrian – All hopes the errors can be found in my posted script – there are some errors and also Note: the actual .configure command-line for each stage – must be all one line or if an error is encounter – being a vi conditioned fossil Control-4 and Control-6, at a line in question will take you too the beginning and or end of line – seeing that if you do copy as such the actual command could be broken shown when actually executing the code, – do the control-4 to end of what chars in that command-line that is failing at that point control-j will pull up the break – x out 1 char space recreating the proper syntax line – most break at dash dash of an option.

    SSL is to have -fPIC. Be honest to say – each compile session can throw one for a loop. make clean after attempts can help – read the READMEs and INSTALLs in each package if your attempting my similar fate.

    One can use my script and remove most all between apt-get gcc* Up-Too part actually installing openssh-8.0p1 .. Adrian is correct – simple method and does work.. Thanks all and hope success. I have re-written parts of the script. I will not repost unless request too. Only then to ask Adrian if he can “Clean my previous bad post” – well its no totally bad – errors contained in another expression, I’ll end here. myScript does provide a good framework to build from.

    Thanks for posting my Script. Its vanilla to run – the Chk part is simply an Exit 0 status check for steps in process if that makes sense ( does to me so I know when the script runs each step is progressing correctly. All hopes all can learn and feel free to fix any errors or other mistakes I may have made – this does work on the last 4 installs I have performed. Free to learn from. Cheers.
