I am doing this in windows. Do I need to compile openssl first?

As the error message says, you need openssl/ssl.h to compile luasec from source.
Depending on your operating system and/or distro, you may have to install it.

To guess at the most likely situation: debian and derivitives I think
the package is named 'libssl-dev'.
