I would like to request that security/ca-certificates be removed
pending further discussion.


- It's dirty and attempts to modify files outside of the pkgsrc
$PREFIX. This isn't standard behaviour and I don't think it's
something we should encourage.

- It has a name that's "too obvious" for users coming from Linux.
  People install it because it's similar to what they're used to
  on Debian, not knowing that the standard method with pkgsrc is
  something difficult.

- We didn't have any discussion about changing the way certificates
  are installed in pkgsrc at any point in the last two years.
  I really should have brought it up at the time, but the last
  two years have made fools of us all ;)

I think ca-certificates should not have been imported without
