Ooops, indeed. I should not have blindly copied the spec file from the
Nmap sources...

However, what about having Nmap telling that it lacks SSL support?

Here is what Nessus gives me:

$ /usr/sbin/nessusd -d
This is Nessus 2.2.10 for Linux 2.4.21
compiled with gcc version 3.2.3 20030502 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.3-59)
Current setup :
        nasl                           : 2.2.10
        libnessus                      : 2.2.10
        SSL support                    : enabled
        SSL is used for client / server communication
        Running as euid                : 1234
        Compiled with tcpwrappers support

We could imagine that Nmap reports this kind of information somehow,
e.g. via "nmap -V".

Perhaps something like the patch that I've attached?  If Nmap is
compiled with OpenSSL support, it will report the version of the library
compiled against, as well as the version of the library the binary is
linked against.  For builds where OpenSSL is not enabled, it notes that
as well.

It should be part of the XML file too, of course.

I'm not sure where something like this would fit in the Nmap XML schema,
and I don't think it's worthwhile to insert it as a comment, as it's not
parseable that way.  If you have any ideas, I could extend the patch to
support that.
