curl can use the openssl ssl callback to fill the trust store
you might look into an old piece of code in the examples "curlx".
It takes at least one CA (obtained from a pkcs12) and adds
it to the STORE. openssl x509 -C provides a method to
create a c snippet containing a cert in a static buffer.

I think it would be indeed interesting to enhance the certtype
by a buffer to a list of certs to make this available for
all ssl libraries.
