The main 'problem' is that the installation cannot be automated, since  
you have to download the java jdk manually (because of the licensing).

If you install diablo-jdk and apache-ant from ports you'll be in the  
right direction. I cannot remember if I had to install anything else,  
but that'll show automatically.

I installed ssl-explorer in /usr/local, left the name of the directory  
like the ones from the zip and created a link to the directory like  

lrwxr-xr-x   1 root  wheel     23 Dec 13 07:48 sslexplorer ->  
drwxr-xr-x  23 root  wheel   1024 Dec 13 07:48 sslexplorer-1.0.0_RC11

That's make upgrading easier. I started of at RC3, and today downloaded RC12.

Initial installation is done via 'ant install' in the main sslexplorer  
directory (there's a sslexplorer subdir underneath), and sslexplorer  
then will listen on some exotic port (which I found by accident), I  
think it's 10080, but netstat will show. After configuring, 'ant  
start' will start sslexplorer on the port of your settings. Especially  
cool is the java rdp client!
