openssl doesn't support separate makefiles and build directories for
64bit builds. I'm creating the files in the build_ssl.py script.
"python.exe build_ssl.py Release x64" has to run first because it
creates the 64bit makefile from the 32bit makefile.

The other way around the build process would overwrite the 32bit
makefile with the settings from the 64bit makefile before it is moved over.
