Documentation patches for ./configure message

Sorry if this is the wrong place for this. I searched around and
'or-dev' seemed like the best place to submit a documentation patch.
Let me know if I should send this somewhere else.
I recently downloaded tor-0.2.0.30 and attempted to build from source.
When the configuration process could not find my openssl library
(under Ubuntu Edgy) it gave this error message:
"checking for openssl directory... configure: WARNING: Could not find
a linkable openssl. If you have it installed somewhere unusal, you
can specify an explicit path using --with-ssl-dir"
Looking at the source, however, I believe this message should use the
switch '--with-openssl-dir' instead of '--with-ssl-dir'. A minor issue
perhaps, but nice to fix. Below is a patch to the configure.in file in
case you want to use it. There is also a patch to acinclude.m4 to fix
the minor typo for 'unusal'. Both of these are patched to the head SVN
files I downloaded a few hours ago - I hope that's current enough.
