Document issue with default installation paths on diverse Windows tar…
…gets For all config targets (except VMS, because it has a completely different set of scripts), '/usr/local/ssl' is the default prefix for installation of programs and libraries, as well as the path for OpenSSL run-time configuration. For programs built to run in a Windows environment, this default is unsafe, and the user should set a different prefix. This has been hinted at in some documentation but not all, and the danger of leaving the default as is hasn't been documented at all. This change documents the issue as a caveat lector, and all configuration examples now include an example --prefix.
