:: It doesn't tell me anything else.

Wow, there is suprisingly little information about this error that I can 
find.  Okay, couple of things to try since I'm flying blind here:

Run curl with the --trace [output_file] option, eg...

  curl --trace trace.txt https://....

Then look in the trace.txt file to see what it says.  Next, make sure that
(if you are indeed trying to connect to a system running an SSL-enabled web
server) that curl is compiled against your ssl library (ldd `which curl`
should do the trick).  Lastly, try upgrading your version of curl, libcurl,
and especially OpenSSL (the version you have is very old and subject to
quite a few exploits).

If after all this the problem isn't apparent, I'd suggest wandering over to 
one of the curl mailing lists to see if they can offer any other help.
