Since I was having problems compiling nmap 3.48 on Red Hat 9
I went ahead and installed your RPM, which claims not to be
linked to OpenSSL.

Why then is it able to determine my Apacke version as shown below?

When a port is found to be running with ssl, it reports like this:
443/tcp open  ssl/http    Apache httpd 2.0.40 ((Red Hat Linux))

So it says it is ssl.

The only thing I can think is that it is responding to non-ssl requests
on 443 as well.  You can test using telnet of course.

As for the trouble building, did you look at the configure patch Fyodor
sent to the list?

[root () localhost root]# nmap -p 443 -sV www.mydomain.foo
