It should attempt to pre-process vtls\openssl.c but then that will end up generating a .int file that is either empty or very small as the #ifdef USE_SSLEAY will cause it to ignore most of the code in that source file.

I don't mind - anyway is fine by me ;-)

So in summary it is pre-processing (runs cpp32) and compiling (runs bcc32) all the source files in the lib directory but not the source files in the lib\vtls directory.

I'm not that handy with makefiles so my apologies if this takes some time but I'm having to compare other makefiles (including the src/makefile.b32) :(

Could you try modifying line 52 which is:


To be

SRCDIRS = .;.\vtls

Note the one dot before \vtls and not two ;-)

And see if that gets any further?

Kind Regards
