A "no-engine" directive to Configure is not one of the documented
options, but looking at Configure, I think it will just cause
OPENSSL_NO_ENGINE to be defined. It doesn't affect which files are

The real question is why you don't have include/openssl/engine.h.
This is created early in the build by "make links". Depending
on the system, you should either have a link or copy of
crypto/engine/engine.h in include/openssl. You need to look at your
logs and figure out why you don't. Do all the other files that are
supposed to be linked or copied to that directory exist? The file that
does the linking or copying is util/mklink.pl. I know that this works
for DJGPP, for cygwin, and for mingw compiled under cygwin. I don't
know how the perl symlink function and the symlink tests work under
ActivePerl compared to the more usual perl implementations.

I only compile for mingw under cygwin with -mno-cygwin and don't have
MSYS, so I don't know that I can help more here. Your build fails
because it doesn't have the definintion of ENGINE_CMD_DEFN that it
needs from engine.h, which apparently wasn't copied or linked into
