If you have mod_so compiled into the server, it may be possible to use
apxs to compile mod_ssl without needing to recompile the entire

But on the other hand, recomplining the entire server is usually quite
a simple thing to do.  Just find the "config.nice" file (should be in
your build/ directory), edit it to add the ssl options, put it in the
source directory and run it.  Then "make install".
