Thanks, the curl reference has helped.

wget reports a warning on both people.a.o and my Windows XP box.

curl is happy on people, but warns on Windows.

I've discovered that

wget --ca-certificate /etc/ssl/cert.pem ...

works on people.a.o, and both curl and wget work on Windows with that
cert.pem file, so problem solved!
