Subject: Fails on Github Actions Windows
Use of uninitialized value $exec in -x at Makefile.PL line 108. Now clearly that means that I need to set up the environment better, however the Makefile.PL really should check if $exec is defined, and if it isn't it should issue a helpful error message such as die "counldn't find ", openssl$Config{_exe};

Thanks, Nigel --- fix pushed to Git master: https://github.com/radiator-software/p5-net-ssleay/commit/04083c2e30dd102662271d6c280932d805fd732b This will become part of developer version 1.89_01, and (eventually) stable version 1.90. openssl(1) actually isn't needed by Net::SSLeay, so there's not really any need to check for it at build time. We're planning wholesale changes to Makefile.PL that should make detection of libcrypto/libssl more reliable and intuitive, but there are a few other things we need to take care of first.
