 With the instructions used in recent versions of BLFS (in
particular, shared libraries), just drop it over the top.  If you
are _serving_ anything which links to openssl then you will need to
bounce those services (i.e. stop them and restart them).  For a
desktop, I guess that closing the browser(s) and reopening those
should be sufficient.
