A change was recently made so that there is now only a --with-ssl options for configuring SSL support, instead of the distinct --with-yassl and --with-openssl flags we used to have. The problem is that because ./configure ignores options it does not understand (by design -- it is like that so subpackages can be passed configure options by a top-level configure), you can now easily compile without SSL support now.

How to repeat:
./configure --with-yassl

Suggested fix:
Add handling for --with-yassl and --with-openssl (probably a fatal error message).

Pushed a fix to 5.1.12 that makes configure return an error when --with-openssl or --with-yassl is passed to configure. The error message indicates that the new switch --with-ssl should be used.
