[openssl.org #1995] Man pages for the "rsa" utility should clearly state what output formats are used

Rich Salz via RT
When reading the manual page of the RSA utility ("man rsa"), one
cannot easily determine whether the output will be in PKCS#1 or PKCS#8
format and whether that format  depends on other options. The only
thing that is specified is the DER/PEM encoding of the output, which
is not a format per se.

It should be stated clearly, whether the output is in PKCS#1 or PKCS#8 format

On a similar note, the man page for the pkcs8 utility states that
depending on option values, the input and output formats may be PKCS#8
or in the traditional format - this should be clarified, what
"traditional" format is - is it PKCS#1?
