[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: openssl-0.9.8b-1, openssl-devel-0.9.8b-1, openssl097-0.9.7j-1

I've updated the version of OpenSSL to 0.9.8b-1.  This also includes the
openssl-devel package.  The compatibility package openssl097 has been
updated to 0.9.7j-1.

This is a upstream bugfix release.  The Cygwin release is built from
the vanilla version.
