Thanks I added it.
I add autotools support for the same and confirmed it's working on
I dunno if this breaks your Cmake CyaSSL scheme... it should be enough
now to just define USE_CYASSL along with LWS_OPENSSL_SUPPORT, without
giving directories, ie, assuming CyaSSL is installed in the normal place.
I added some stuff I worked on during a flight yesterday... if you do
anything with headers, this is worth being aware of
