COPYING: Add exemption to OpenSSL.

Based on talks suggestions from j-b and http://people.gnome.org/~markmc/openssl-and-the-gpl.html
make exemption to OpenSSL. OpenSSL binary libraries are used to link against Qt (QtNetwork's ssl apis)
while building win32 contribs, which then are used with VLMC for cross compiling win32 binary.
The same wordings and statements except for owners and authors were used in Qt's LICENSE file.
