I do not know why we do not include OpenSSL. We just never have. If
you want to build a full server you have always had to download and
build Apache separately. It is pretty easy to build Apache with
OpenSSL and then just point the Subversion build at the APR, OpenSSL
and ZLib you used when building Apache.
