Hi Andy,
> http://cvs.openssl.org/chngview?cn=16832.

nice hack, and useful for me too;
I copied the lines you used into a separate script:

my $ver=`nasm -v`;
my $vew=`nasmw -v`;
# pick newest version
$asm=($ver gt $vew?"nasm":"nasmw")." -f win32";

print "We use: $asm\n\n";

however when nasm.exe is not found it looks like this:

'nasm' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
We use: nasmw -f win32

therefore I'd suggest to modify this to catch the stderr output:

my $ver=`nasm -v 2>NULL`;
my $vew=`nasmw -v 2>NULL`;
# pick newest version
$asm=($ver gt $vew?"nasm":"nasmw")." -f win32";
