Hello Francis,

Thanks to Vladimir for preparing and contributing the Windows makefiles :)

Aha, one thing that we forgot again when preparing this release is that we
don't have any Makefiles for compiling the SSL part of libwww under Windows.

Basically, you have to make a new libwwwssl library, include all the .c 
files that are under Library/src/ssl, and add the dependencies to the open 
ssl libraries and to some of the libwww ones.

You'll also need to edit the Library/windows/configure.h file to activate
libwww's SSL code.

If someone wants to contribute these files, I can give more information
on what has to be added. You can get these info too from the Unix Makefiles
that are included in the package.

My apologies for having forgotten about this again,

-jose
