IIRC, the embedded SSL library I wrote (with Chris Hawk) at Certicom was < 
64K of 68K code (we originally wrote it for PalmOS devices), including all 
crypto, for a fully-compliant SSL 3.0 & X.509v3 implementation (client-side 
SSL only, with a profiled subset of SSL ciphersuites and X.509 features, of 
course). And it could run with a RAM usage of substantially less than 
10K/connection. And we wrote it in less than a month (it was our third or 
fourth time implementing SSL and X.509, though).

The complete Certicom library is somewhat bigger, but it's got a lot of 
flexibility, (modular crypto interface, etc.), and code size wasn't a 
concern on desktop/server platforms.
