I think the relevant section from the source distribution README.win32 is

  * OpenSSL for Windows. This is if you want the SSL and crypto
  applications to compile (and run). Go to http://www.openssl.org, click
  on the "Related" link and then on the "Binaries" link (upper right
  corner of the page last time I looked), you can then reach the
  "Shining Lights Productions" Web site for Windows binaries
  distributions. Get the latest or 0.9.7b if you get trouble with the
  latest. It's a nifty installer. The rest should be handled by
  configure, you needn't put anything in the path or anything.

In the manual for the Erlang/OTP ssl application you can read

      For <c>Win32</c> it is only required that the libraries can be
      found from the <c>PATH</c> environment variable, or that they
      reside in the appropriate <c>SYSTEM32</c> directory; hence no
      particular relinking is need. Hence no example <c>Makefile</c>
      for Win32 is provided.
