Atlas is a large port that is quite a beast to compile. We're always having problems with it. You should probably file a bug report about this problem in the issue tracker, if none of the existing atlas bug reports cover this.

Please file a bug report. Looks like openssl tries to install files whose names differ only in case, which is a no-no.
