Hello Anton,

Thanks for your reply.  Yes, the official way is to install
security/ca_root_nss.  According to the handbook:

After reading Matthew's reply and the handbook I kept the protocol for
svnup at https, the default, which AFAIK, is the slightly more secure
option at a slight loss of speed.

As of date, ca_root_nss is not required by svnup so a user will have to
specifically install it, if some other program has not pulled it in as
a dependency.

I do not know how ca_root_nss works but will save that for another day.
Right now, it just works, without any intervention on my part.  Kudos
to the developers.

This message is meant as a note for the record in case anybody else has
a similar situation or concern.

Cheers ...
