Bug 256923: textproc/py-sphinx: Remove or make OPTION'al dependency on
security/ca_root_nss dependency
https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=256923



--- Comment #1 from Kubilay Kocak <koobs_at_FreeBSD.org> ---
Investigate:

 - Nature of requirement for ca_root_nss. Possible workaround?
 - UX considerations for OPTIONAL ca_root_nss (in particular, disabled case)
 - Alternative root cause resolutions

Note; while cert management isn't a ports domain, the default and out of box
experience with respect to validation of remote servers is. There's an entire
history of bug and user reports going back a long way [1][2] (among others),
and we still don't cover all the bases.
