Ouch.  I would be thankful for any patches that allowed the use of
Wget/SSL on non-Linux systems.  (I know next to nothing about SSL
myself.)

Is Wget available via CVS somewhere or should patches be against 1.7?

Quoting [EMAIL PROTECTED] ([EMAIL PROTECTED]):

See http://sunsite.dk/wget/wgetdev.html - I guess patches against 1.7
are fine, as the current difference to CVS is almost NULL.  

Thanks for your help!

 When I installed OpenSSL 0.9.6a using the default configure options, it
 didn't make any shared libraries, but I have libssl.a and libcrypto.a
 installed, and wget's configure process does find them. (Do I need to install
 the shared libraries?)
 
 For example, I can connect to https://www.apache-ssl.org/ in Netscape just
 fine, but here's what happens when I try with wget 1.7:

Note that we have added such support to other programs and will
hopefully get time soon to do it to wget. cURL already has support for
EGD/PRNGD so we're just going to steal their solution.
