Out of curiousity, why did you stop compiling with PageSpeed? Also isn't there a way of checking for the newest version versus manually typing in the newest versions?

@partounian: I stopped using it because it wasn't compatible with HTTP2.
I haven't tried since.

Just built mainline 1.13.0 with http2 support and latest-stable pagespeed, it required a couple of modification to the build script so I could use the latest-stable tagged archive but seems to work fine with HTTP2 and pagespeed is working fine, just FYI

Hi. What's the main purpose of `--with-ld-opt="-lrt"'? I know it's for realtime library, but what happens if I omit it?

Thanks for your script! I am curious why you are doing this:

touch $STATICLIBSSL/.openssl/include/openssl/ssl.h

nginx 1.13.5 is building perfectly fine without it. I don't even need to ./configure LibreSSL manually:
