nasty man page nitpick for openssl-0.9.7c

I just noticed this myself: openssl-0.9.7c appears to botch the
installation of a few man pages.
1) it stupidly installs a man page called "EVP_MD_CTX_copy_ex
EVP_MD_CTX_copy.3" that's really supposed to be two separate man
pages: "EVP_MD_CTX_copy_ex.3" and "EVP_MD_CTX_copy.3".
2) it commits a similar faux pas with "UI_construct_prompt
3) last but not least, it makes "EVP_BytesToKey.3" a symlink to
itself. (gah! teh poop...TEH POOP!!!)
AFAICT, this is happening because it's generating man pages from
pod files with a script called extract-names.pl, and this script
got a bit stricter on pod formatting with the new 0.9.7c
release. Unfortunately, a few pod files aren't up to snuff with
this newfound strictness.
Am I the only one who's getting bitten by this?
If not, the attached patch fixes the pod files (at least for me):
"If a server crashes in a server farm and no one pings it, does
it still cost four figures to fix?"
