+ ALSO NOTE that those directories are usually write protected, even if
+ your account is in the Administrators group.  To work around that,
+ start the command prompt by right-clicking on it and choosing "Run as
+ Administrator" before running 'nmake install'.  The other solution
+ is, of course, to choose a different set of directories by using
+ --prefix and --openssldir when configuring.
