Comment(by ag@…):


 curl https://fedorahosted.org/releases/x/m/xmlto/xmlto-0.0.23.tar.bz2

 You will probably take an error, unless in your case curl hardcoded with a
 way the path to the cert bundle.

 Now (if you got the error) try again with:

 curl --cacert /etc/ssl/ca-bundle.crt -O

 I think the right thing to do is to provide the optional option "--with-
 ca-bundle=/etc/ssl/ca-bundle.crt", if a user is linking curl with

 In the case of gnutls however, we'll have to tell the reader with a way,
 to install the ca-bundle.crt, with a similar way as in the case of
 openssl, e.g.,

 tar -vxf ../BLFS-ca-bundle-3.12.5.tar.bz2
 for pem in *pem; do
 cat $pem
    echo ""
 done > /etc/ssl/ca-bundle.crt

 I really can't think right now, how this text can be written with a clean
 way, unless (maybe) we dedicate a page for the certificates installation,
 then it will be easy.
