 No, it is finding the cert path, not the bundle.  As Ag mentioned earlier,
 the certificate //path// is not valid when linking against gnutls.  Again,
 also as already mentioned above by Ag, the correct solution is to separate
 out the ca-bundle, call it an optional dependency for both gnutls and
 OpenSSL, and add the "--with-ca-bundle=/etc/ssl/ca-bundle.crt" line to
 curl's configure arguments.  The alternate is to move ca-bundle.crt to
 /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt, but I don't like that idea because it
 results in double matching hash values (and potentially triple if you
 aren't careful about the commands used to create the bundle), which breaks
 some of OpenSSL's verification tools output (sorry, don't recall which
 tools, think it might have been s_client, but no time to verify right
 now), the very reason I did not follow the Debian example when adding the
