[Xymon] Upgrade to 4.3.21, https tests seem to no longer work.

I upgraded to 4.3.21 today, from 4.3.14.  It was built using this command:

build/makerpm.sh 4.3.21

After working my way through recovering my configs that were pushed out
of the way as .rpmsave files, I started it.  Immediately I got http
alarms failing.

The most interesting one was this.  I have xymon monitoring its own URL,
which is secured with SSL:

red Tue Aug 25 11:38:40 2015: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML

&red https://xymon.REDACTED.com/xymon/ - <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC
"-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN">

<title>400 Bad Request</title>
<h1>Bad Request</h1>
<p>Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.<br />
Reason: You're speaking plain HTTP to an SSL-enabled server port.<br />
Instead use the HTTPS scheme to access this URL, please.<br />
<blockquote>Hint: <a
<address>Apache/2.2.15 (CentOS) Server at xymon.REDACTED.com Port

It looks like what's happening is that xymon's http test has forgotten
how to speak HTTPS.  It actually looks like it has forgotten how to
speal SSL entirely -- imaps and pop3s are showing yellow status with
"Unexpected service response" messages.

I am now also seeing purple alarms from sslcert, because none of the SSL
stuff is working right.

How can I fix this?
