Oops, did you pass --enable-ssl to configure?  I forgot that Aaron
changed the default to not build with SSL support (for legal

I'm in the process of cleaning up the build code right now, but
you should be able to check out what it is in CVS right now and
you should have better luck (please make sure you re-run 
buildconf).  If you pass a https URL to a non-SSL enabled flood, 
you will now get an error like:

jerenkrantz@tweety% ./flood examples/round-robin-ssl.xml             
open request failed (
Error running farmer 'Joe': This function has not been implemented on this platform

(This is a much better error message than was there at the
beginning of the day - we output the URL and say that it hasn't
been implemented - which is technically correct.  Not really
user-friendly, but it'd let us know what is going on.)

And, if you are on Solaris 2.6, you'll probably need to specify
--with-openssl to indicate your OpenSSL location as it probably
won't be in the default search path.

I have also updated the documentation on the website to indicate 
that SSL is no longer the default...  Sorry for any confusion on 
our part.

No problem!  I hope we get you up and running with flood.  Please 
bear with us.  =)  -- justin
