I have been maintaining curl and nss for our distro and I was wondering
if there is any advantage to building curl against NSS. Currently we
don't even have that as an option.

Also is it proper to build curl against gnutls and openssl and libssh2
or should it only be one of these three or nss?

I finally got midori/webkit working with https site by adding
ca-certificates and building curl against openssl with the options:

--with-ssl=/usr --without-ca-bundle --with-ca-path=/etc/ssl/certs

I was just wondering if I am doing things correctly.
