I was able to at least make the multiple definition error go away by specifying 'no-asm' as a parameter to the Configure command.  Can anyone explain what the implications of such a setting are?

I am trying to build a library of FIPS 2.0.12 and OpenSSL 1.0.2f for MIPS architecture on vxWorks.  I am getting this error during the link step:

../libcrypto.a(bn-mips.o)(.text+0x700): In function `bn_div_3_words':
: multiple definition of `bn_div_3_words'
/usr/local/src/w/branches/zorro/tos390_tls/vendor/openssl-fips-2.0.12_installation/lib//fipscanister.o(.text+0x321c0): first defined here

I see that others have encountered this problem in the past, but I have found no explanation or resolution.


Can someone provide guidance for resolving this error?
