If crypto software is written outside the US it can be imported to the US.
But once something is in the US it can't leave the US.  Since you're
outside the US there aren't any huge problems -- it just means that the
SSL code has to go in an export controlled area on apache.org, and it also
needs to be available on a server outside the US.  I think if you dig
around on www.eff.org you'll find the appropriate references.  There's
more information on http://avalon.caltech.edu/~thanne/law.html.
