Actually, it is screwed up for the older versions, not for 1.1.1:
In OpenSSL 1.1.0 and before, the pod files (the manual page sources)
would be located in <openssldir>/doc/crypto and <openssldir>/doc/ssl, 
and only during the installation would be placed in the proper manX
subdirectory (X=1,3,5,7). Starting with OpenSSL 1.1.1, the pod files are
now reorganized in subdirectories doc/man1, doc/man3, doc/man5,
doc/man7, reflecting the manual section where they will finally be installed.

So the path is correct for 1.1.1 and screwed up for 1.1.0 and below.
