address@hidden:/home/tg $ ls -l /etc/ssl/certs/
total 408
-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  1489 Oct  1 22:57 052e396b.0
-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  1606 Oct  1 22:57 ff783690.0

Hmm... I don't have that directory. Will it automatically be recognized (by Lynx, Firefox, etc), or do I have to somehow advertise/register that as the repository?

I just downloaded something called "cacert.crt" and have no idea what to do with it. <g>

/me googles.

Hmm. For OS X <> says to put it in ~/Library/Keychains/ and run the following:
cd ~/Library/Keychains
cp /System/Library/Keychains/X509Anchors .
certtool i cacert.crt k=X509Anchors
sudo cp X509Anchors /System/Library/Keychains/X509Anchors

So, 'certtool' sounds like the key (no pun intended, amazingly). Of course when I try 'man certtool' I get nada. Oooh, MacOSXHints has an interesting article at <> which leads to a CerttoolGUI program. ::downloading::

Do I use certtool on FreeBSD too? How will Lynx know I got cacert.crt, etc.?
