darcs https/SSL repos on OpenBSD

Complaining, complaining, always complaining

Trying to access a repo on a https URL (using SSL) using darcs on OpenBSD, I got the error:

"Peer certificate cannot be authenticated with known CA certificates"

Even though there is a "real", "verified" certificate on the SSL web host. The problem appears to be that darcs goes through curl for these http accesses and curl does not find the proper CA root certificates.

Solution: Download the root certificates from the curl caextract page and install them in /etc/ssl/cert.pem. Seems like there was some root CA missing in the cert.pem bundle that I had there.
