Try the Cygwin port. I did get openssl working once, and I think it was
with the Cygwin port, but it wasn't easy.

Windows changes its I/O buffering when commands are run with I/O
redirected, and if the commands are not designed to be used in a pipe or
are direct Unix ports input is often buffered indefinitely.  We have
done all we can at the Emacs end to improve this. Unfortunately Cygwin
programs often use a Cygwin specific solution for this which results in
an error message like "no tty found" when they are run from native
Emacs, but it is still worth trying.
