For quite some time I cannot use the 'vsis' because of certificates issue. For example, a GMT test that has a command like this no longer works on Windows

gdalinfo /vsicurl/http://larryfire.files.wordpress.com/2009/07/untooned_jessicarabbit.jpg


ERROR 11: HTTP response code: 301 - SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate gdalinfo failed - unable to open '/vsicurl/http://larryfire.files.wordpress.com/2009/07/untooned_jessicarabbit.jpg'.

It used to work but probably with an older libcurl dll.
The above is with my own build gdal and dependencies (libcurl included) but the same happens with the gisinternals binaries.

I have re(and re)ad this page about the certificates


but regarding Windows and the curl-ca-bundle.crt file what is said about it simply does not work. The only thing that works is setting the ENV variable

set CURL_CA_BUNDLE=V:\bin\curl-ca-bundle.crt

Now, we had this in GMT recently and I used the nuke option

curl_easy_setopt (Curl, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0L); /* Tell libcurl to not verify the peer */

so tried to do the same thing in the GDAL code (the obvious point seamed to be VSICurlSetOptions in cpl_vsi_curl.cpp) but still does not work.

OSGeo4W works but probably because they are still using a 4 years old libcurl.dll

Am I the only one seeing this?
