I have developed a patch to more clearly explain the problem with a
missing client root.crt file:
$ PGSSLVERIFY=cn sql -h localhost test
psql: root certificate file "/u/postgres/.postgresql/root.crt" does not exist
Either supply the file or set sslverify to "none" to disable server certificate verification.
$ PGSSLVERIFY=none sql -h localhost test
SSL connection (cipher: DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA, bits: 256)
Type "help" for help.
I had to add a second error message line; I didn't see us doing a
second line anywhere else in libpq, but it seemed to be the only
solution. Should I use three lines?
