gnutls-cli output showing bad cert

Lists.gentoo and mail.gentoo use CACert-signed tls end-entity certs.

The intermediate certs on both are cacert’s old md5-signed intermediate.  As such, gnutls — and perhaps other tls libs — refuse to trust it, even when cacert’s root cert is trusted.

Cacert issued a new intermediate in 2011 which is signed with sha256.

Mail.gentoo uses the new intermediate.  Lists.gentoo also needs to.

For lists, this only requires using the new intermediate; the rest of the config is OK.

(tls to mail.gentoo fails because its cert is for dev.gentoo; it would be useful to have cacert issue it its own ee cert.)

We no longer have CACert certificates in use.
