As I also wrote in bug 52631, you need to come up with a clear description of
what you think the bug in mod_ssl is. In particular, this means providing clear
steps to reproduce, and giving details about what exactly seems to be "fishy"
or "buggy" (see e.g. point 4 at

Can't reproduce - configuring client authentication with SSLCACertificatePath
and using Firefox as the client works fine for me, either when specifying an
absolute or a relative path (under Linux, you might want to try runnning httpd
with "strace -e stat64 httpd -X" to see for what CA cert files it looks

When a CA cert isn't available to mod_ssl, "unable to get local issuer
certificate" is clearly the expected OpenSSL error. Unless you're seeing
*other* errors in the log when connecting with Firefox, there's no mod_ssl bug
to report.
