 Rob Nicholls.

When was that changed? The mswin32/nmap.vcxproj currently specifies
'/MT' and '/MTd'. Multithreaded, link with libcmt[d].lib. AFAICS.

It looks like it was r8507 in 2008. nmap.vcxproj uses /MD
(Multi-threaded DLL) in Release configuration and /MTd (Multi-threaded
debug) in Debug configuration. (Right-click the project, Properties,
C/C++, Code Generation, Runtime Library.)

So since OpenSSL apparently uses '/MD', why don't nmap and friends?
I mean, what bad could happen if we drop this openssl/applink.c shim
in ncat.exe? (why isn't applink.c used in the other programs?).
Can somebody clarify?

In Release mode we do use /MD, I think specifically because of OpenSSL.
I don't remember what the purpose of applink is, you'll have to search
the commit logs.
