[openssl-users] libraries after the build for WIn platform

I'd recommend using the official releases rather than the 
work-in-progress code at the head of git. Whoever looks after the 
library which needs OpenSSL should be able to tell you what version it 
needs, but from those names it's the 1.0.2 branch or earlier. 1.0.2 will 
be supported until the end of 2019, and its latest release is 1.0.2j. 
It's available from the downloads page at 
https://www.openssl.org/source/ and there may be built binary 
distributions available elsewhere.
