openssl config file location

shpedoikal (Bugzilla)
Hi, the page

http://www.openssl.org/docs/crypto/OPENSSL_config.html

claims that OPENSSL_CONFIG should be the environment variable to set
for an alternate config file, however it appears that the code wants
OPENSSL_CONF.  Also, the OPENSSL_config.3 man page shows
OPENSSL_CONFIG..  Others manpages such as ca.1 show OPENSSL_CONF...

That web page and OPENSSL_config.3 are from the same .pod file so they will
say the same :-)

Thanks for the report I'll fix it.
