OpenSSL1.0.0e+Net::SSLeay on Windows

I managed to get Net::SSLeay to work with the last OpenSSL release. Here just some not for myself.

OpenSSL test-suite build will fail but the .a and the openssl.exe file are ok.

The openssl.exe binary is in apps/ on Windows, not bin. Net::SSleay Makefile.PL file to find the OpenSSL distribution because of that.
