Not really.  I once used Cygwin & nasm to build the assembler parts of
a windows version of openssl.  It was ompiled with cl then.  But I have
not tried this recently.  I need some more details about the problem and
your system configuration and setup.

Attach the output of `cygcheck -svr`, please.

What are the errors in the Makefiles?  Are you using the right perl?
How should the Makefiles look like?
