[MingW] Undefined reference BUT find it with "nm"

Hello,

I am trying to make SSL work with boost ASIO. I am on windows and using MingW 6.3.

I built OpenSSL 1.1, 1.0 and 0.8 with MingW when I try to link them to the project I always get different errors (depending on what is missing). Right now I am trying to make work OpenSSL 1.1.0g but I have those error even though I give manually the path to the libs with CMAKE.

This is the errors if I build my projct with OpenSSL 1.1.0g :

I'm really lost here. What did I do wrong ?

Order of included libraries does matter, sometimes the same library need to be specified multiple times to work correctly. This is due to a "feature" of gnu linker which attempt to be "smart" and save time ( crap behaviour if you ask me )
