I haven’t looked if that’s possible.  Users of libcurl are supposed to
set the location of the cert bundle or else have to use the default for
*libcurl* provided at configure time.

This plugin does have a knob to override the location, but I don’t know
how to turn it.  It looks like it’s used as a command line argument, but
nobody uses this plugin on the command line.

If you can find a way that doesn’t involve patching in a getenv call I’d
be happier, but if we can’t figure out another way and the alternative
is to have a broken plugin I’d rather go down the getenv route.

What do you think?

I used epiphany for the test.
