I can build slrn +ssl, but that release is quite ancient (it's from 2004) as the current release is 0.9.9p1 (newer than the pre that ports is downloading which is from the summer of 2008, iirc).

0.9.9 came out in aug 2008 and 0.9.9p1 in Oct 2008.

People who would not believe a High Priest if he said the sky was blue, and was able to produce signed affidavits to this effect from his white-haired old mother and three Vestal virgins, would trust just about anything whispered darkly behind their hand by a complete stranger. --Maskerade
