hi tatsuki,

i've recently taken over maintaining the nagios-plugins package
in debian, and would like to work with you to resolve the bug
you reported about check_http not working with some remote
ssl implementations.

in your previous mail, you mention that rmeoving the line

	SSL_set_cipher_list(ssl, "ALL");

seems to fix your problem.  while i'm not an expert, i believe "ALL"
is a valid cipher name in openssl that translates to all available
ciphers on the client, and i'm a little nervous to yank out any
code i don't fully understand.

so, i guess what we need to know is why things are failing when contacting
the remote host, and what this function does to play a part in it.
perhaps this is some openssl "extension" that other implementations
don't understand?  i will cc this email to the nagios-plugins development
group in the hopes that perhaps someone there can shed some light on
the manner.
