--enable-debug is meant mostly for developers, it only slows down
Dovecot in normal use and prints some rather useless information about
growing memory pools and such.

1.0-tests have mail_debug = yes setting which shows more useful debug
lines for admins. But it doesn't really tell anything about SSL either.
What exactly would you want to see in such debug lines?
