I've been trying to figure out how to make SSL work for about a week now. I've been completely unable to find any documentation.

System is i386 running Debian GNU/Linux.

I've got mozilla source code, from CVS. When I run ./configure --help I don't see any mention of security, or SSL, or PSM at all. There's a security/psm directory, but typing 'make' in there doesn't do anything magical.

The Debug|Install PSM menu option leads me to iplanet.com and gives me an option to install PSM for Linux. This goes smoothly, generates a success message, populates the dist/bin directory with some shared objects... and then utterly fails to work when I type https://.... (And why is one of the shared objects for the SPARC arch, anyway?)

I'm currently configuring with "../mozilla/configure --with-jpeg --with-zlib --with-png --enable-nspr-autoconf --with-nspr --disable-mailnews --disable-debug --enable-optimize", using a separate directory for the build. (The security directory is not being created in the build directory, which I think is a symptom of the problem....)

Is there any documentation on building mozilla with SSL yet? I'm probably overlooking something fairly simple....
