I have problems connecting to https sites using cURL or wget. When I download from a https curl seems to be stuck while doing the TLS handshake, CERT. The problem is independent of the site (I noticed it using github) and wget is hanging too (although I didn't look into the verbose outputs there).
$ curl -v --trace-time https://www.google.de 10:35:21.532822 * About to connect() to www.google.de port 443 (#0) 10:35:21.533091 * Trying 188.8.131.52... connected 10:35:21.538666 * Connected to www.google.de (184.108.40.206) port 443 (#0) 10:35:21.539119 * SSLv3, TLS handshake, Client hello (1): 10:35:21.544129 * SSLv3, TLS handshake, Server hello (2): 10:35:21.544182 * SSLv3, TLS handshake, CERT (11):
I have waited >10 min but nothing happens. I am using OSX Lion.

I don't know where to look for help so I'd be happy if you could give me some pointers.
