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:

I’m looking into where those files are supposed to be from, but if anyone knows it would be greatly appreciated!

I’ve done a search through all our code, we never use CURLOPT_CAINFO. I was under the impression that specifying —with-darwinssl and —without-ssl would build curl to use only SecureTransport and the OS X keychain, so I’m also confused as to why it’s trying to load a certificate from the file system.
You mention a configure option to set the default location - do you have any additional information about that? I’m not specifically setting it when building, but maybe it’s something I need to disable?
