    Thanks to those that provided the following answer.

    Within the <openssl src root>/fips subdirectories there are several
    Makefiles that use a syntax construction that confuses the compiler.

    Look for Makefiles where EXHEADER is not assigned a value:


    and the following line appears:

    for i in $(EXHEADER) ;

    Change this line to:

    for i in "$(EXHEADER)" ;

    I had to do this to about 5 Makefiles.
