Rust pkg-config issue on openssl dependency

Hi there,

I have a small question to rustaceans,

Using fenix overlay, I am trying to install a rust app (wezterm, latest). Openssl crate fails with:

error: failed to run custom build command for `openssl-sys v0.9.61`

Caused by:
  process didn't exit successfully: `/build/source/target/release/build/openssl-sys-4469be1f03860f0b/build-script-main` (exit code: 101)

  Could not find directory of OpenSSL installation, and this `-sys` crate cannot
  proceed without this knowledge. If OpenSSL is installed and this crate had
  trouble finding it,  you can set the `OPENSSL_DIR` environment variable for the
  compilation process.

  Make sure you also have the development packages of openssl installed.
  For example, `libssl-dev` on Ubuntu or `openssl-devel` on Fedora.

  If you're in a situation where you think the directory *should* be found
  automatically, please open a bug at https://github.com/sfackler/rust-openssl
  and include information about your system as well as this message.

error: build failed

I already have openssl added as dependency, here is the manifest if you’d like to check.

Manually forcing via

PKG_CONFIG_PATH = "${fenixpkgs.openssl.dev.outPath}/lib/pkgconfig:" + "$PKG_CONFIG_PATH";

causing the build to finish, but application fails with missing library :confused: :grey_question:

Should I just report to crate upstream, or am I missing something obvious?

Thanks,

move openssl from nativeBuildInputs to your runtime / buildInputs, and the pkg-config setup hook should be able to find it.

O-oh… I gotta re-read that difference from the wiki. Thank you :tada:

The wiki could use some clarification… feel free to edit! Issues building with OpenSSL seem to come up quite a bit.
