Summary0002654: Warning from Netsurf - Couldn't use specified SSL cipher

I am a user of Centos 7. I built Netsurf 3.9 from source following the instructions on https://source.netsurf-browser.org/netsurf.git/plain/docs/quick-start.md. When I try to use it to go to a secure site, for example https://bugs.netsurf-browser.org/, I get a pop-up window that says, "Warning from Netsurf - Couldn't use specified SSL cipher." This stops me from going to the secure site.
Steps To ReproduceBuild Netsurf 3.9 on Centos 7 using the instructions on https://source.netsurf-browser.org/netsurf.git/plain/docs/quick-start.md. Run Netsurf and try to open https://bugs.netsurf-browser.org/.
Additional InformationI though it might help to see the output from uname -a:
Linux solextel.com 3.10.0-957.12.2.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue May 14 21:24:32 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I'm using a Dell PowerEdge T105 which is AMD based.

This is a quick developer note for when the team comes back to triage bugs

seems centos 7 and rhel now use the nss ssl library by default instead of openssl and the NetSurf cipher suite selection for ssl needs to use a different list.

Yet another case of libcurl ssl abstraction being leaky.
