So just for the archives, if one changes /etc/w3c/validator.conf to have
  Allow = http,https
and adds libcrypt-ssleay-perl, it works.

Self-signed certs may even no longer prevent validation of the rendered HTTPS (very useful for web site development testing on VMs, etc.), provided that one adds a line like :


around the "Define global variables." section in /usr/lib/cgi-bin/w3c-markup-validator/check.

Of course, doing this on a production server may not be advisable... on the other hand I don't know if it matters much that the SSL certs are verified or not when one is interested in the HTML served there... YMMV.

Hope this helps.
