Bug #20987 Problem with curl_setopt and client certificates

It appears that if you try to specify a client certficate for an HTTPS connection using the CURLOPT_SSLCERT option, nothing gets set. An example would be:

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSLCERT, "client.pem");

A quick look at the PHP source seems to indicate that this option is omitted from the curl_setopt function. If I add it it works fine.

Basicly, dnorrell wants this little patch applied and I think (s)he is right:
