The mod_ssl module is not compiled for the no_ssl binary  
distribution, and it does not contain the OpenSSL cryptographic  
libraries. So, that binary distribution cannot be used to serve HTTPS  
traffic. You can download and use it even if your government, or the  
US government, don't want you to have access to cryptographic software.
