Or better still, use the function registered by the ssl module for the purpose:

APR_DECLARE_OPTIONAL_FN(int, ssl_is_https, (conn_rec *));
static APR_OPTIONAL_FN_TYPE(ssl_is_https) *wsgi_is_https = NULL;


   if (!wsgi_is_https)
        wsgi_is_https = APR_RETRIEVE_OPTIONAL_FN(ssl_is_https);

    if (wsgi_is_https && wsgi_is_https(r->connection))
        apr_table_set(r->subprocess_env, "HTTPS", "1");

Ie., HTTPS is set by the above sort of process, but as pointed out
that is done only in fixup phase, but you can call the ssl_is_https()
function direct if in earlier phase.
