I wonder if we need this for gnurl or if the code base of gnurl is still
curl-like enough that it respects the variable.. last time I tried gnurl
as a user on its own (which is *not* the intended use) was on Gentoo.
Gnurl is afaik not (yet) a gnu project and requires no sync with the gnu
descriptions.. I should add this to the description.

But can you share some insights why curl requires this? For gnurl I rely
on its test suite, but I think curl does not complain about the missing
CURL_CA_BUNDLE in its test suite either, or does it?

And if gnurl should require this, how could I fix gnurl (not the package
description in guix) to drop this strange behavior if it is possible at
