My environment includes:

... it appears that the Configure script for openssl picks up one or more of these and thinks that having FLAGS defined more than once is somehow an error.

If I invoke 'bmake clean && CFLAGS="" bmake test', then the build proceeds to:

... so despite my machines clearly being of mips4 ABI, openssl makes assumptions and breaks because it assumes mips3.

'CFLAGS="" LDFLAGS="${LDFLAGS/,-mips4,/,}" bmake test' does appear to work - but this should either be ensured in the pkgsrc Makefile or (better) any specified CFLAGS/LDFLAGS should actually be used rather than overridden.

Problem on IRIX.

From: "Stuart Shelton" <>

 Problem still exists in openssl-0.9.8h - although I've now found that
 CFLAGS don't have to be entirely unset, but that the "woff" option
 cannot be specified.  That's weird...

Is this problem still current? Between pkgsrc and openssl changes, it's hard
to tell, and very few people have access to irix to test...

Assume no longer relevant - if you are using IRIX and openssl still/again
blows up, please file a new PR.
