Hi Darren--

4.3 is not out yet; the reference is to the current CVS version (which
will, eventually, become 4.3, I suppose), which you can check out and
use, although it is not an "official" release and will therefore
probably be a bit unstable (I've been running it on my dev server for a
while without much in the way of problems).

An alternative would be to compile the curl library in a 4.2 release and
use that one to pull SSL pages.
