Ali, do you build much software?  It sounds like you do not, and
that you would get a lot of benefit if you could find someone
near you to help out for a few minutes.

Nevertheless, here is some more information that may help out:

That one is for cross-compiling Windows binaries.  No good.

That one is for building x86-64 binaries.  The fact that it
exists shows that you are probably using i386 binaries by
default.  (You can confirm this by running "file /bin/ls", which
will probably say that /bin/ls is an "ELF 32-bit LSB

You need to install the libssl development libraries for 32-bit
