Potential gotcha is that you end up loading up client CAs in the trusted
certificate store which isn't always what you want. For example if that context
gets reused they'll be trusted server CA certificates later.

Also I think this:

+        chain = sk_X509_new_null();
+        for (i = 0; i < sk_X509_num(sctx->chain); i++) {
+           sk_X509_push(chain, sk_X509_value(sctx->chain, i));
+        }

along with:

+    X509_STORE_CTX_free(sctx);

will end up freeing up the certificates you just added to the chain. You can
replace that all with:

chain = X509_STORE_CTX_get1_chain(sctx);

which creates a STACK_OF(X509) and ups the reference count of the added
certificates so they stick around after you free the context.
