 I think I want to handle this by using the "ca-bundle" make target. But
 that invokes a perl script which downloads "certdata.txt" from
 mozilla.org. To ensure that everyone gets the same version of this file,
 we should download it outselves by including it in the portfile's
 distfiles. But that file seems to change often, and I can't find a URL to
 download a specific version of the file, only the current file. Right now
 I'm inclined to make a separate port just for the ca-bundle, so that
 whenever it changes, users don't also have to rebuild all of curl.
