Due to its no longer possible to compile nginx 1.9.12 (unpatched) with libreSSL 2.x.

Problem is calling the make target install_sw which is simply non-existing in LibreSSL. The closest make target I could find in the sources is install-strip (which serves roughly the same purpose of not building documentation files).

Please see for details. The purpose is to build on CentOS 7 which doesn't yet supports an OpenSSL version with ALPN.

As the nginx project has a huge standing in the (not only BSD) community, could you ask the LibreSSL maintainers to either provide a make install_sw target which roughly corresponds to the respective OpenSSL project's one; or implement an compile time flag to enable compiling with different (makefile) library implementations (I haven't even tried with WolfSSL yet).

Eventually, it was no problem to build nginx 1.9.12 after patching auto/lib/openssl/make, but I wouldn't be surprised if this problem will come up again.

I understand, and sorry for the double-post.
