I couldn't figure out how to do that with the dependencies. Nevertheless
I found cerbero [0] which looks very familiar to me (reminds me of
buildroot) and it seems to be able to cross compile almost any
autoconf-using program on many environments (from ios to android).

Indeed, and not only that the CA and user certificates should be read
from the keystorage. I suppose these could be handled by a wrapper app,
but I'm not really sure.
