Starting with 10.6 or 10.7 OS X no longer reads ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist

The only way to set variables for all your applications is by editing /etc/launchd.conf — e.g. add:

    setenv CURL_CA_BUNDLE /usr/share/curl/curl-ca-bundle.crt

This requires a reboot (or maybe just relogin). To do a test you should be able to execute:

    echo 'setenv CURL_CA_BUNDLE /usr/share/curl/curl-ca-bundle.crt'|launchctl

Then the next time you launch TextMate (from Finder), it should have the variable set.

As for the general problem of why curl fails to verify StartCom certificates, I have no idea, but I’m inclined to think something is broken on your system…
