[Freeswitch-users] Freeswitch Dependencies

I haven't used or built Freeswitch yet, but I'm getting closer to that
point.  I will be building from source.  Having looked at the documentation
I can see that Debian is preferred, and the use of distros in general.
However, I don't use distros, but rather build my own systems from scratch.

I've looked at the Centos page ( https://freeswitch.org/
confluence/display/FREESWITCH/CentOS+7+and+RHEL+7 ) and under "Building
from source" there appears to be a list of dependencies.  I already have
most of those dependencies installed (other than the codecs) but I have
three questions which maybe somebody can answer.

The first is: can openssl be substituted with libressl, which I use?

The second is: "mongo-c-driver-devel" suggests that mongodb is a dependency
of Freeswitch.  I've seen no mention of mongodb anywhere in either the
book, or the documentation generally, so why is this listed as a dependency?

The third is: there is no mention of package version numbers anywhere, so
how can I find if there are any issues with particular versions?

Any help gratefully received.
