It is easy to pull the source using git and to build it yourself.

mkdir ~/openssl
cd ~/openssl
git clone git://git.openssl.org/openssl.git .

From the INSTALL document:

make test
make install

The last command should be done as a superuser.

note that git checkout xxx can be used to pick the version you want to use.
