Hi anybody who may be able to help

I am trying to build xmlsec under mingw/msys.

I have got to the point where it SEEMS to build OK with the following 

./configure --prefix=$PWD 
--with-libxml-src=/projects/xmlsec1/libxml2-2.9.0  \
--build=i686-pc-mingw32 \


then completes OK (there are some warnings about various libs appearing 
to have been moved).  However...

make check

logs lots of errors of the form:

Error: unable to load xmlsec-openssl library. Make sure that you have
this it installed, check shared libraries path (LD_LIBRARY_PATH)
envornment variable or use "--crypto" option to specify different
crypto engine.

Can anybody tell me what to do about this?  I can't find a DLL of that 
(or similar) name anywhere.


make install

fails as follows:

make[5]: Entering directory 

*** WARNING ***:

You seem to have old xmlsec header files installed in:


The entire directory will be removed now.
To allow parallel installation of different xmlsec library versions,
the header files are now installed in a version specific subdirectory:



rm: cannot remove directory 
`/projects/xmlsec1/xmlsec1-1.2.18/include/xmlsec': P
ermission denied
make[5]: *** [remove-old-headers] Error 1

Any help would be much appreciated.
