Regarding cacerts generation, I've attached the latest diff to the bug,
but I did not catch Pavel's logic change (mentioned in the previous
thread). I was unable to see the failure (probably something just
blindingly obvious), but it'd have to be accounted for. I also added a
--with-cacerts switch which should cover distribution maintainers who
have a pregenerated cacerts file so that distros can easily continue to
"do their own thing", but nothing in the patch modifies the default
configure behavior. Also changed to --enable-generate-cacerts to make it
a bit more clear as to the purpose. As far as the failing tests (also
mentioned previously), I've found that either expired or invalid
certificates do cause the tests to fail (used an old set of unsanitized
mozilla certificates for the input file). Probably need to guard against
that in some way with the generate-cacerts.sh script (or whichever
preferred script is used).
