So having read the NEWS announcement for 0.9.8, I was eager to try
re-compiling openssl without the old deprecated functionality. However,
util\mk1mf.pl complains about no-deprecated being an unknown option.

OS: WinXP SP2
Perl: ActiveState 5.8.4 build 810
Compiler: MS Visual Studio .NET 2002

1. Extracted openssl-0.9.8.tar.gz to C:\openssl-0.9.8.
2. cd /d C:\openssl-0.9.8.
3. perl Configure no-deprecated VC-WIN32
The output for step 4 is as follows:
