It is actually surprising to me.  Modern versions of GnuTLS make a point
of trying to integrate well with the local OS, to the point where it has
features on Windows that it doesn't have on other OSes because Windows
offers features in the crypto API that aren't on other OSes.


In particular, i'd expect that
gnutls_certificate_set_x509_system_trust() should Do the Right Thing.

If there's a particular step that you took that you think GnuTLS should
be able to do automatically on OS X, i recommend opening a report here:
