msg303372 - (view) Author: Ivan Pozdeev (Ivan.Pozdeev) * Date: 2017-09-29 23:26 removes "PERL=perl" line from externals\openssl-1.0.2j\ms\nt.mak .

This results in lots of calls like:

./util/ "<file1>" "<file2>"

(without the leading "perl")

Which opens the file in the program associates with the extension (Notepad by default) instead of executing it.

Since adds the found Perl into PATH, "PERL=perl" should be safe in all cases and there's no reason to omit it.
