The ruby gems installer is designed to take care of dependencies for the host system.
On CentOS 7 (and possibly others), this installer does not check if the package openssl-devel is already installed. This is required to build a package for the deployment with the gems, due to ssl support.

Installing openssl-devel manually works and fixes the build errors; however, it should be included in the dependency check list.

Logs below (only partial, but enough to show how I deduced the error. Due to information sensitivity matters I have to be careful, but if I am asked for a specific part I can look at it and update as fit).
