After a fair amount of tinkering around, trying different machines and user accounts, I finally got the above to work on a 10.6 machine. I have a 10.8 OSX which simply will not connect to the site even after adding the self-signed cert to just about every Keychain I saw (so no "Are you sure?" message from Safari or anything - simply does not connect), whereas 10.6 does pop up that message and adds the cert to the login / system keychain when you say "Trust Always". Has anyone seen this behavior or know of self-signed cert issues with 10.8?

I know at this point, the thread has probably gone off-topic - although the real need was/is to use libcurl to communicate with self-signed certs on a Mac, it looks like it might be broader issue involving 10.8. So if this is no longer the forum for this discussion, I'll understand.
