commit abdd677125f3a9e3082f8c5692203590fdb9b860
Author: Rich Salz <rsalz at openssl.org>

    Make OPENSSL_config truly ignore errors.
    Per discussion: should not exit. Should not print to stderr.
    Errors are ignored.  Updated doc to reflect that, and the fact
    that this function is to be avoided.
