  I suspect that the reason is that your lib ssl is
not being used. Keep in mind that targets are
scoped within a project. A lib ssl in user-config.jam
is totally separate from a lib ssl in your Jamfile.
To access it you'll need to add
project user-config ; in user-config.jam and then
refer to /user-config//ssl in the Jamfile. (The
name in the project declaration doesn't have to
be user-config. It will work as long as it matches
the project name in the target reference.)
