[Interest] macOS: troubles using my own CA

Yes, I've removed my own OpenSSL libraries built for macOS and Qt 6.3.0 
switched to SecureTransport and also started to show that message.


Qt 5.12 : uses SecureTransport ALWAYS.

Qt 6.3 : defaults to OpenSSL, if available. Falls back to 
SecureTransport if not.

So. Is there a way to force Qt 5.12 to use OpenSSL instead of 
SecureTransport? :) I've tried googling but did not find answer.
