python urlopen has been failing for a number of locations since I upgraded my system. It raises the following error; as it's unable to find the CA bundle file.

URLError: <urlopen error="" <span="">[SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed (_ssl.c:590)>

The fink package ca-bundle is installed and up to date, but it puts the bundle file in a subdirectory /sw/etc/ssl/certs/

Looking at other systems that uses e.g. macports I found out that creating a symlink /sw/etc/ssl/cert.pem makes it work, and the error indeed goes away. However I think this should be done during installation/upgrade and not from the user side.

$ fink --version

    This should affect all OS X, so I switched the milestone.
    Assigning to package maintainer.
