Is it vanilla OpenSSL or some redhat-patched sources?  Vanilla one 
builds just fine here under FreeBSD as well as CentOS 6.2.

If it indeed doesn't work for you with vanilla OpenSSL, please try
to remove and re-extract sources from openssl-1.0.1.tar.gz tarball 
to make sure there are no accedental changes.

If it still fails to build with nginx, please provide full 
transcript of the nginx ./configure and build till failure, as 
well as some more details information about your OS.

You may also try doing relevant build commands in openssl build 
directory yourself, in particular make sure the following works ok 
in the directory with openssl sources:

./config no-shared no-threads && make

If it fails, there is probably some issue completely unrelated to

This is expected to fail, you have to run just "make" (or "make 
top", which is the same).  The "all" target requires variables set 
by top-level makefile.
