I have Ubuntu 6.06 installed

$ uname -a
Linux delora 2.6.15-23-386 #1 PREEMPT Tue May 23 13:49:40 UTC 2006 i686 GNU/Linux

Here's the configure switches I used for R11B-1

$ ./configure  --with-odbc --x-includes=/usr/local/include --x-libraries=/usr/lib --with-ssl

screen output from make commands deleted below...

$ make
$ cd /usr/local/lib
$ sudo mv erlang erlang-R11-0
$ cd
$ sudo make install

$ which yaws
$ yaws --version
Yaws 1.65

excerpt from /etc/yaws.conf ...

<server localhost>
	access_log = false

        port = 443
        listen =
        docroot = /var/yaws/expect
        dir_listings = false

  appmods = <mxml, mxml>

  errormod_404   = m3m_404
  errormod_crash = experror

                keyfile = /etc/yaws-key.pem
                certfile = /etc/yaws-cert.pem

starting yaws thusly...

sudu su -c "cd /var/yaws/ebin ; \
                 /usr/local/bin/yaws -sname yaws_autosys -heart \
                 --conf /etc/yaws.conf -D -x"

$ echo y | w3m -dump https://localhost
self signed certificate: accept? (y/n)Accept unsecure SSL session: unverified: self signed certificate
Expect Media Server was expecting a POST.

aa v1.23

al v1.8

d v1.71

er v1.4

ec v1.38

em v1.23

fi v1.25

mx v1.151

o v1.6

I do not think I added anything special to my Ubuntu install
except probably the dev stuff for ssl ...

$ dpkg --list | egrep -i libssl
ii  libssl-dev                             0.9.8a-7build1                       SSL development libraries, header files and 
ii  libssl0.9.7                            0.9.7g-5ubuntu1                      SSL shared libraries
ii  libssl0.9.8                            0.9.8a-7build1                       SSL shared libraries

Hopefully some item in the above will assist in troubleshooting
your configuration.
