issue with fossil in source code README.md

As reported on the Fossil forum.
Due to a change in fossil 2.12, the fossil instructions in the Sqlite README.md no longer work for recent versions of fossil.
mkdir ~/sqlite cd ~/sqlite fossil clone https://www.sqlite.org/src sqlite.fossil fossil open sqlite.fossil directory ~/sqlite is not empty use the -f or --force option to override
In my estimation "fossil open" should be changed to exempt the .fossil argument.

That seems like a reasonable long-term solution. But it will take some time for a version of Fossil that supports that to propagate through the ecosystem. So in the meantime, the README.md file has been adjusted to give a procedure that should work for any version of Fossil after 2.0.
