[Xymon] skip http check

There is no test built into xymon to monitor only the certificate.
I'm using a script taken (and modified) from deadcat.net (long gone). 
Look at xymonton.org or list archives for suggestions. As I recall, my 
script rips through the hosts file looking for ssl[:port] tags on hosts. 
It then makes an openssl s_client call to grab the cert, parse, and 
evaluate the results.

I hesitate to share a copy of my script here, as it runs on Solaris, is 
ancient, and uses a whole bunch of crudgy Big Brother references.

    Do things because you should, not just because you can.
