Apparently your distribution does not ship libmicrohttpd with HTTPS
support. If you want to use HTTPS, you can ask the maintainer of the
libmicrohttpd you are using for a version which supports it or build
libmicrohttpd yourself.

If you don't need HTTPS right now, you can launch gsad with the
"--http-only" parameter to use HTTP instead.
