It also means more ambiguity and mess... I would really like it if there
was simply _one_ way to get certificates and we could properly document
it in places like the pkgsrc guide. These discussions so far are
completely irrelevant to anyone using pkgsrc on platforms other
than NetBSD as well...

These certs are from Debian, but nowhere does it actually say this
unless you read the Makefile.
