The core reason for mozilla-rootcerts-openssl is that openssl has a
crippled configuration system such that you can't just stick a line in
its config to add the certificates installed by pkgsrc; they have to
be copied into /etc.

Persuading openssl upstream to fix this problem is really the best way
