[xmlsec] Verifying signature with embedded x509 cert

No joy. It refuses to load the key. The irony is that I can use the xmlsec
utility and pass it the name of the temp file I create with the key and it
will load and verify. It just won't do it in my program. Here's the errors
I'm seeing:

app.c:line=260:obj=unknown:subj=d2i_PrivateKey_bio and
d2i_PUBKEY_bio:error=4:crypto library function failed:
function failed:
xmldsig.c:line=871:obj=unknown:subj=unknown:error=45:key is not found:
function failed:
function failed:

The signature will verify with the xmlsec utility if I pass it the cert,
just not from my program. My next step is to reduce things to the bare
essentials and try again
