Yes, but it's been awhile and I'm not sure if it will work or not on the current version of rails.
Basically you replace the normal server script with an alternate that starts WEBrick with SSL on. The script's a little long, so I'll pastie it.

You'll need to update OPTIONS[:ip]. I don't think you can just leave it out when doing SSL. The certificate stuff is also really funky, so you'll get a bunch of the "are you sure you trust this site" messages. I'm sure some tweaking could resolve this though.
