I'm not sure the current c_rehash supports that.  People (or scripts)
may want to run c_rehash on /etc/ssl/certs, at which point it would
remove the hash links, and you have nothing left.

We need something that says "those certificates should be in
/etc/ssl/certs", and I don't think the hash symlinks work for that.
