Thanks for the info.  I did some more digging and you had actually posted a workaround in this thread:

I thought I would try it out.
I used your example and created my own config target in file named no_dos.conf. 
    'my-linux-x86_64' => {
        inherit_from    => [ 'linux-x86_64' ],
        dso_scheme     => undef,

./Configure --config ../no_dso.conf my-linux-x86_64  -m32 --prefix=$install_path/openssl_32 -DPURIFY -DOPENSSL_NO_COMP no-asm no-shared no-dso no-sse2 no-idea no-mdc2 no-rc5 no-ssl3 no-zlib no-comp no-afalgeng no-pinshared

But I'm getting this error from the script when Configure is run:
target already defined - ../no_dso.conf (offending arg: my-linux-x86_64)

What did I miss?
