Description Seth Vidal 2002-01-12 10:09:26 EST
the openssl pkg puts its certs directory in /usr/share/ssl/certs

If an admin is putting certs in place they would then have to place or symlink
them into /usr/share/ssl/certs

Since an ssl key is more like a config file it should probably be in
/etc/ssl/certs. Additionally it makes backups more simple b/c you can just grab
/etc and get all the critical files in one place.

It doesn't make sense for a directory where a user should put files for the
system to be in /usr which could be mounted ro.
