	doing build on system with read-only /etc (but writeable
	/usr), a "make build" blew up while installing openssl because
	openssl.cnf failed to install.

	my understanding was that our conventions were that /etc was
	to be left alone by normal "make build", so that one could
	safely do a "make build" on a live system without fear of
	trashing local config changes.
	on a system with crypto-us or crypto-intl, 

	cp -r /etc /etc.real
	mount -t union -o ro /etc.real /etc
	cd /usr/src
	make build


FILES=  openssl.cnf

from makefile, and add an equivalent to a to-be-created
