But that is a *massively* more difficult portability problem than just
"where do I find OpenSSL or LibreSSL?".  Do you know where the OS
trusted CAs are for every platform and distribution on which Perl
runs? Or if there even is such a thing as an "OS trusted CA" on all of
them?  Or what format they are in?  Or whether they even exist on the
filesystem or are in some proprietary data store?
