I do it routinely.

1. Modify Configure script, adding target
mingw-cross
(this all should go into one line)
"mingw-cross", "i586-mingw32msvc-gcc:-mno-cygwin -DL_ENDIAN
-fomit-frame-pointer -O3 -march=i486 -Wall
-D_WIN32_WINNT=0x333:::MINGW32:-lwsock32 -lgdi32:BN_LLONG
${x86_gcc_des} ${x86_gcc_opts}
EXPORT_VAR_AS_FN:${x86_coff_asm}:win32:cygwin-shared:-D_WINDLL
-DOPENSSL_USE_APPLINK:-mno-cygwin
-shared:.dll.a:i586-mingw32msvc-ranlib",

2. Modify Makefile shared so it would call
util/mkdef.pl script. and add generated .def file to linking command
Note that DEF file should contain correct DLL name, not just crypteay32
mingw32 builds libcrypto-0.9.8.dll, and this name should exactly appear
in the .def file


3. Forget about dllwrap and such. Modern Mingw32 produce absolutely
correct dlls with just gcc -shared -o dllname,
if you specify .def file along with object file.
