[openssl-users] Build failure in 1.0.1k on Windows

I just downloaded 1.0.1k and when trying to build it on Windows (using Visual Studio 10.0), I get a compile error:

.\crypto\cversion.c(80) : error C2065: 'cflags' : undeclared identifier
.\crypto\cversion.c(80) : warning C4047: 'return' : 'const char *' differs in levels of indirection from 'int'

The problem is this block in cversion.c:

                if (t == SSLEAY_CFLAGS)
#ifdef CFLAGS
                                return("compiler: information not available");

There is no "cflags" variable anywhere. I suspect this should be "return (CFLAGS);", and making this change to the source does make the compile succeed. I'm not sure how it compiles as-is on Linux but it does.
