I would like to implement SSL with my Apache server on BSDI 2.0. 
Is Stronghold's Apache SSL server worth the $495?  How hard is it to do
the patches and the recompiling from the freely available components for
BSDI?
     Thanks in advance for any help.

Yes.  We're quite happy with it on BSDI.  We're switching from
Netscape's commerce server.

It's illegal in the U.S. because of RSA patent licensing, so it
doesn't matter how hard it is.  But Stronghold is a nice package.

It depends on the circumstances. Firstly you can avoid RSA although that
doesnt make your SSL very useful, secondly RSAref is free for some uses.

The best answer is to stick your SSL server somewhere in the free world
like finland
