What I was saying is that once the configure script confirms that OpenSSL 
shared is available and tests ok then those other tests are not needed for 
mingw, in my opinion. This is assuming shared is intended to be preferred over 
static. With Windows builds I would expect that's the case, if using openssl to 
use the DLLs by default. An example of this is in revision 2485 configure.ac 
changes. There was a case for mingw, and then the default case. Now there is no 
default case, and the script will always try for static even if shared has 
already been found.
