Woody ships wget 1.8.1, this version is GPL and may therefore not be
linked against OpenSSL, that is probably the reason wget-ssl was
removed from woody.

1.8.2, the version in sid has a different license:
|wget (1.8.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
|  * new upstream 1.8.2 from 2002-05-26
|  * added OpenSSL exception to debian/copyright
|  * wget has now an OpenSSL exception and crypto into main
|    is allowed so this version is build with https: support
