I am encouraging and offering the poster a way to solve their problem, after
providing some possible reasons for dropping support from some ECs.
Rebuilding a Cygwin package from source using cygport is a relatively easy task.
I am not presuming, but assuming some amount of technical expertise, based on a
poster asking about openssl configuration and which ECs they want to support.
If they need more help they can ask in a follow up.

Please refrain from your own inappropriate assumptions and meta-commentary based
on that, as this is not a social media platform.
Why would you assume the poster is a novice?
Before commenting, please try yourself to consider multiple perspectives on
