curl and openssl sees it.
Both Cygwin and native openssl.

It does, of course, but why doesn't it see the PKI by itself?

$ wget --ca-certificate=/etc/ssl/certs/dd07c56a.0 https://ca.rootdir.org/ca.crl

No. Hashing /etc/ssl/certs has been enough for a long while.
I followed the directions, and it indeed fixed the issue, but I'm surprised by
the change in behavior.
