I don't think this is the correct fix. Indeed, host-mariadb builds just
fine on a system where the OpenSSL headers/development files are *NOT*
installed.

This means that host-mariadb does not require host-openssl, but uses
OpenSSL if available. So the proper solution is to pass some option at
configure time to tell host-mariadb to not attempt to use OpenSSL.
Indeed, we are not really interested in having OpenSSL support in
host-mariadb.

It apparently needs an SSL implementation, but has a small bundled one
based on yassl. Can you try:

HOST_MARIADB_CONF_OPTS += -DWITH_SSL=bundled

and see if it fixes the problem for you ?

You can try to compare the build time of host-mariadb + host-openssl
vs. host-maria-db + bundled SSL.

Best regards,

Thomas
