Just to through my $0.02 in.  Slackware does work with ssl=reguire but when I
did try to use the visual query tool (not sure how to use it actually) the 10/29
snapshot did crash.  I haven't retried it though since I wanted to hear some
other feedback.

Also, anything before OpenSSL 0.9.7c or 0.9.6k is not viable because of a recent
CERT.  Please see:
