Thanks Arto!

It's really a pain that openssl keeps changing it's directories :)

I'll add a configure rule to search for the new .h. This way, it'll still
work if people compile under the old open ssl. Or, I can also say that
we're only compatible with 0.9.6.

I'm forwarding your message to the libwww mailing list, as it's the only
discussion list we have.
