[openssl-users] cannot configure openssl-1.0.1n on Windows with msys --target already defined - (offending arg: mingw) -- the issue does not occur in openssl-1.0.1l and openssl-1.0.1m.

Hi All,

I was able to compile openssl 1.0.1l and openssl 1.0.1m perfectly via 
msys in Windows 8 -- but something isn't working right with openssl 1.0.1n

*Exact steps using msys causing the error:*

tar xvzf openssl-1.0.1n.tar.gz
cd openssl-1.0.1n
export PATH=/c/mingw/bin:$PATH
$ ./Configure --prefix=$PWD/dist no-idea no-mdc2 no-rc5 shared 
no-threads mingw

*Error is:*

*target already defined - User Name/Desktop/openssl-1.0.1n/dist 
(offending arg: mingw)*

I am not doing anything differently from what worked previously in 
1.0.1l and 1.0.1m

Please advise if you know how to fix this.  Thanks so much for the help!

Best Regards,
