It makes sense to me to have a daemon with and without -ssl (eg
postfix, exim, apache,..) but makes it sense for other programms.
I mean for example wget, w3m, lynx, lftp, links,... who have a -ssl
pendant in non-US.
I would like to add the -ssl configure option to the program in main
and remove program-ssl in non-US (like the webmin maintainer did but the
was no reaction to his mail, afaik). 

Maybe someone can help me to understand why this way is a problem?
