I am trying to build the ovs on windows 10 with following command line

 ./configure CC=./build-aux/cccl LD="`which link`"     LIBS="-lws2_32
-lShlwapi -liphlpapi -lwbemuuid -lole32 -loleaut32"
 --prefix="C:/openvswitch/usr"     --localstatedir="C:/openvswitch/var"
    --with-pthread="C:/pthread"     --enable-ssl
--with-openssl="C:/OpenSSL-Win32"     --with-vstudiotarget="Debug"

openssl is installed from  https://slproweb.com/products/Win32OpenSSL.html
at C:/OpenSSL-Win32

The configure fails with

checking for openssl/ssl.h in C:/OpenSSL-Win32... yes
checking whether compiling and linking against OpenSSL works... no
configure: error: Cannot find openssl (use --disable-ssl to configure
without SSL support)

What can possibly be the problem?
