I've had good luck with mini_httpd

32k and it does https (dynamically linked to libssl + libcrypto)
I just rebuilt it without https and its 30800. Not a huge savings,
but if you already have the crypto libs for ssh you might as well go for
from the README:
mini_httpd - small HTTP server
version 1.15c of 02may2001
mini_httpd is a small HTTP server. Its performance is not great, but for
low or medium traffic sites it's quite adequate. It implements all the
basic features of an HTTP server, including:
* GET, HEAD, and POST methods.
* Basic authentication.
* Security against ".." filename snooping.
* The common MIME types.
* Trailing-slash redirection.
* index.html, index.htm, index.cgi
* Directory listings.
* Multihoming / virtual hosting.
* Standard logging.
* Custom error pages.
