I am sorry that did not even check but just wanted _some_ openssl DLLs
to continue the work. I do not think there will be any problems if we
update to 0.9.8 as long as we provide an upgrade path in install.sh,
i.e. detect the older version somehow. I do not know off-hand, so where
are the DLLs installed to? Do we have total control over what openssl
is used effectively?

If you are able to build gwenhywfar with 0.9.8 on windows, then
I think we should use that. Or are there technical reasons not to
use the latest stable version?
