bzr: Value "/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt" is not valid for "ssl.ca_certs"

The bzr package in Cygwin uses an incorrect default path for the
system certificate list, which causes this error:

     $ bzr clone lp:~foo/bar
     Value "/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt" is not valid for "ssl.ca_certs"
     No valid trusted SSL CA certificates file set. See 'bzr help
ssl.ca_certs' for more information on setting trusted CAs.

     See `bzr help ssl.ca_certs` for how to specify trusted CAcertificates.
     Pass -Ossl.cert_reqs=none to disable certificate verification entirely.

     bzr: ERROR: _ssl.c:323: No root certificates specified for
verification of other-side certificates.

The problem can be resolved on Cygwin by creating a configuration file
like this:

     #  $HOME/.bazaar/bazaar.conf

Or by overriding the default path on the command line like this:

     $ bzr clone -Ossl.ca_certs=/usr/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt lp:~foo/bar
