            Bug ID: 215332
           Summary: root certificates are not a default install for fetch
                    and need to be.
           Product: Base System
           Version: 10.3-RELEASE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Many People
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs at FreeBSD.org

The issue:
If you are going to include fetch you need to include the root certificates.
Normally there is not an issue with standard http. However most websites for
security have removed normal ftp and are using https. This is a problem.
Sending people out to ports for the ca_root_nss is a waste of time. It would
also appear that the port attempts to also build perl.  Many of us already have
perl, linked to the usr/bin. I will note a much later version than what the
port is attempting to download and install.

You cannot provide half the solution. Either all of the solution or none. The
current solution is time consuming and detracts from the fine work you have
Time to add the certs.
