Customer trying to implement ModSecurity (Using CA documentation) is getting following error when starting the apache:
./httpd -d /$SPECROOT/apache -k start
httpd: Syntax error on line 129 of //opt/application/spectrum/apache/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load modules/ into server: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.
However the needed file is located in:
$ locate
Spectrum 10.2.1 on Redhat 6.5
Install the openssl098e package, It looks like this is needed.

After installing openssl098e (yum install openssl098e), the specific libraries are available... 

ldd /opt/application/spectrum/apache/modules/ => (0x00007fff19906000) => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007f2817bf2000) => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007f2817896000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f2817691000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f281747b000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f2817277000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f281706e000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f2816e37000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f2816c1a000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f2816885000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f2816641000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f281635a000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f2816155000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f2815f29000) 
/lib64/ (0x0000003513200000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f2815d25000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f2815b1a000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f2815917000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f28156fd000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f28154dd000) 

and this solved the issue.
