But "openssl s_client -connect" does the equivalent of curl --insecure, iirc,
so there's no surprise there.

Well, there's no other magic tricks. Now you have debugging left, and figuring
out why OpenSLL doesn't think that cert is enough. I would assume that you're
good not enough with just that CA cert, but that you need more certs from a
trust chain.

Did you try with the extracted mozilla ca cert bundle?
