I order to get SSL support in libpq to I recently updated both the openssl
libpq package.

You probably have a SSLEAY32.dll in your system32 that overrides the one
installed with OSGeo4W.

It should have been upgraded by dllupdate from the postinstall batchfile.
Could you please check in the %OSGEO4W_ROOT%/var/log/setup.log.full and report
what happened?

QGIS would also benefit from GDAL 1.7 python bindings...
