Libcurl Darwin SSL Errors

I’ve been using libcurl in an OS X app for several years, linking against the system provided dynamic library. Recently we wanted to add the ability to do a multipart form post, which requires a newer version of libcurl than is provided by Apple. So I downloaded the source and compiled it using the following options:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/curl --with-darwinssl --enable-static --disable-ldap --disable-ldaps

I then link against the static library that is built, and everything works great.

However, when I build a release and run it on a different machine, I receive the following error whenever I try to download a file using HTTPS: "Problem with the SSL CA cert (path? access rights?).”

I’ve tried in on two test machines, both of which are running slightly older versions of OS X than what I used to compile with (10.11 and 10.12, where I’m using 10.13). I don’t have another 10.13 machine right now to test if this is related to the OS version.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
