[Seaside] Building OpenSSL on Windows?

Hello all,

I am hopefully getting close to fielding my BibTeX system, but decided
to make a new certificate for the machine, and ran into troubles with
things that I had considered stable for some time.

Do any of you have experience building OpenSSL via mingw?  Does it work
with the most recent versions?  My bag of tricks appears to be failing
me, and most of what I see on the net talks about upgraded MS tools -  I
am trying hard to remove their influence from my life, so I am not keen
on running home to Redmond.  Should  I just switch to cygwin??  I would
want to build binaries that are independent of the environment, which
AFAIK is possible.

If it gets to be too much trouble, I can probably switch to skimming
off of Apache for the binaries.  I first fought through the build
process because Apache did not ship with mod_ssl and friends :)   That
would leave me wanting CA functionality (creating self-signed
certificates), and I suppose I could begin to get that from Linux. 
Suggestions, warnings, saged advice, etc.??
