Hi Juan,

ssl is enabled by default *if* configure finds the files it needs. Can 
you check if the packages libgnutls-dev and libgcrypt-dev are installed? 
./configure should spit out something like this at the end:

configure: Configuration Summary:
   Operating System:  linux-gnu
   libgcrypt:         yes
   libcurl (testing): yes
   Target directory:  /usr/local
   Messages:          yes
   HTTP Authentic.:   yes
   Postproc:          yes
   HTTPS support:     yes

configure: HTTPS subsystem configuration:
