Page has grown too large[edit]

Hi Everyone. I think this page has grown too large and should be separated into separate pages. It has become messy and hard to organize the information.

Painting with a broad brush, leave "Compilation and Installation" as the main landing page. Always refer to it from external places, like Stack Overflow. At "Compilation and Installation" include the basic information, like intro discussion of various platforms and the Unix/Linux options. Then, create separate subpages for specific platforms, like Linux, OS X, Windows, Windows CE, etc. "Compilation and Installation" provides a link to each subpage.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

Good idea. Are you willing to start on that?

How should we handle instructions for different OpenSSL versions, e.g. do we have a page per platform and then on each page split it by 1.0.2 vs 1.1.0? Keeping in mind of course that 1.0.2 will be EOL at the end of the year.
