I have openSSL set up as a dependency for other projects that I'm building.
It builds with the following commands:
call perl Configure VC-WIN64A no-zlib no-shared --prefix=.
nmake -f ms\nt.mak
This works fine, but only if I'm physically at the command prompt. If I
attempt to redirect the output to a file, the build fails. The error is due
to crypto/x86_64cpuid.pl. It looks like it's trying to create a file, but
the file doesn't get generated, so when that file is referenced it throws an
error. In line 11 of this file it attempts to open STDOUT, so I'm thinking
that the redirection of the console log is causing this line to break, and
the file to not get generated. Anyone else run into this and have a

In my experience this is your copy of Perl itself not being
compatible with your remote execution system.
Try adding these 6 commands before the first Perl call to
echo Hello > hello1.txt
call perl -e "print qq!Hello\n!" > hello2.txt
echo Hello > hello3.txt
If your Perl is OK in the execution environment, you should
be left with 3 files all saying "Hello\r\n".
If your Perl is Bad in the execution environment, you should
get good hello1.txt and hello3.txt, but bad hello2.txt.
If your Perl is very Bad in the execution environment, you
should get good hello1.txt, bad hello2.txt and no hello3.txt.
Other results will need further investigation.
I have not tested these steps, I just typed them into the e-mail.
