I can confirm now that it works fine with SSL and no certs.

OTOH, I did discover that if you run ./configure --with-openssl and
./configure can't seem to make openssl work, it will happily continue to
build, removing the openssl option and issue no errors :(  Is there any
way we can have ./configure either emit a loud warning or simply die if
--with-openssl is specified but the configure tests don't pass?

FWIW, if you're building on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you'll need to pass:
CFLAGS=-I/usr/kerberos/include to configure in order to make it build with
openssl (as well as have the krb5-devel package installed).  For the
people who really care, this is already bugzilla'ed:
