mozilla-rootcerts-openssl (which exists to paper over packaging
deficiencies in mozilla-rootcerts) is an abusive package that both
installs outside $PREFIX and also mangles /etc directories directly.
It should not be getting installed by default, or depended on.
youtube-dl depends on it now. This is probably bad; we should figure
out a more structured way to deal with these things.
