It is really easy to set up.

make sure you have openssl installed

add "--enable-ssl" to configure options (may need --with-ssl=path if
installed in a non-standard place

while it is compiling, read

and follow the directions for generating a certificate

<IfModule mod_ssl.c>
SSLCertificateFile /home/goober/server.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /home/goober/server.pem
SSLLog /home/goober/apacheinst/logs/ssllog
SSLLogLevel debug
<VirtualHost>     (replace ip:port with something appropriate)
SSLEngine on

curl is nice for playing around; make sure you add
"--with-ssl=/usr/local/ssl" (substitute your path if necessary) to its
configure invocation
