I am trying to build graphics/oidn, and make fetch fails:
Code:
==> Fetching the oidn/weights subproject with large LFS files
Downloading rt_alb.tza (3.7 MB)
Error downloading object: rt_alb.tza (182e317): Smudge error: Error downloading rt_alb.tza (182e3176e6c13edd3ac7d152f650580679fff3c6540f3b4e512e3d678d040a43): batch response: Post "https://github.com/OpenImageDenoise/oidn-weights.git/info/lfs/objects/batch": x509: certificate signed by unknown authority

I have analyzed the matter so far:
This port has a pre-fetch stance in the Makefile. And in addition to the normal distfiles (which do download fine) it also downloads (clones) an entire git repo in that pre-fetch step (and this does also arrive just fine). But then this git repo contains BLOBs, and therefore devel/git-lfs is used to download these, and this is what fails - the complaint "x509: certificate signed by unknown authority" is given as a "Batch response" after git-lfs sends a batch request for the required files/BLOBs.

One can reproduce it 'naked':
Code:
$ ( echo "version https://git-lfs.github.com/spec/v1"
> echo "oid sha256:182e3176e6c13edd3ac7d152f650580679fff3c6540f3b4e512e3d678d040a43"

Setting GIT_SSL_NO_VERIFY=1 solves the problem. But I would like to understand what is going wrong here.

This report here describes the same error (with a different software) - without coming to an explanation. But an interesting statement there is that the reporter experiences the problem in the office, but not at home! Which makes it somehow related to the local side of the network. And I would very much like to know what might be wrong with my network.

This thing is weird.
When you look closely at the logs above, you will see at the second approach I did run the git-lfs outside of the port's directory. So git-lfs did not know the port's proper repo to retrieve, and instead found our FreeBSD ports repo, as it was still within /usr/ports. Consequentially it did not connect to github.com, but to git.freebsd.org - but that yielded the same error!!

OTOH: when I use the 2021Q1 checkout, it all works with no error! And there is not so much changed.

Found that it depends on lang/go. When devel/git-lfs (2.13.1 or 2.13.3) is compiled with go 1.15.9. as of 2021Q1, it works normally. When either git-lfs version it is compiled with go 1.16.4 as of 2021Q2, it does always report x509: certificate signed by unknown authority.

Now, why is go controlling the certificate use of programs it compiles?
