The key difference turns out to be:


Which gnutls-cli sets and I didn't. When I use this, I can successfully verify this server's certificate!

Perhaps the gnutls_certificate_verify_peers2() description in the docs could hint about the possibility that this is needed?

Another little nit that is slightly related:

gnutls-cli uses the gnutls_certificate_verify_peers() function (alias, not the *2 version), there are numerous references to this function in the docs but there's no description for it... I take it the gnutls_certificate_verify_peers2() is the one we should be using, but it would probably be suitable if gnutls-cli was switched to use it and if the references in the docs were updated as well.
