Unless you have a special need to compile mod_ssl in a non-standard way,
I think you can avoid building it altogether.  Instead, you can just
install the "apache-ssl" debian package, which already has SSL support
built in.  It provides a separate "apache-ssl" executable which allows
this ssl-enabled Apache server to run in parallel with the standard one.

I'm running the servers from both the "apache" and "apache-ssl" packages
on my system, and everything works fine.
