I tested with another internet connection and found that direct download
from http://www.yassl.com worked fine.

It seems that the culprit for redirection form is `transparent proxy`
operated by my ISP. Direct connection to http://www.yassl.com without
any `transparent proxy` middleman works fine.

Although that's the cause of my problem, I still suggest to provide
another mirror for cyassl in case main cyassl mirror prevents direct
downloading for users behind `transparent proxy`.
