I would be inclined to use --with-system-ssl-certdir or something
similar ... the name --with-ssl-certificates sounds like you're
turning on and off the use of certificates altogether.

I might also split this into two options, the second being
--enable-install-certs or something.  Pidgin would then look in *both*
locations for certificates.  I'm not sure.


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
