[docs] Mac -- Python 2.7.10 still is not using newer OpenSSL on new installs

The current shipping Mac package for Python 2.7.10 installed on a OS X 10.8.5 machine currently still is reverting back and using Apple's older OpenSSL.

I read in the readm.txt file that this problem was patched to load newer version of OpenSSL.

I've been trying to compile source and all suggestions I have been able to find on the net of how to add newer openSSL to Python 2.7/x have failed as well.

I can get Python to compile but have not been able to link that to newer OpenSSL.

I am not sure if the new install is not overwriting some older file or the new linking is not working on the OS X version.

Please let me know what I can do to fix this?
