Retrieve HTTPS from Pharo

When setting up a task to check the weather, each time it attempted to retrieve the contents from, pharo crashed with a core dump.

One clue was that this wasn't a consistent problem for every machine, on a Mac it worked fine, copying the same image to a Fedora Linux allows the image to start, but when retrieving an https URL it crashed. A consise test is:

./pharo Pharo.image eval "'' asUrl retrieveContents size"

This behavior indicates that it is likely an SSL library issue.
