 We want to disable ctypes at compile time in TBB for sandboxing reasons,
 but the SSL Observatory relies on ctypes to convert a certificate into a
 byte array. There's got to be a non-ctypes way to do this.

 For now, it simply breaks the SSL Observatory cert submission in TBB, but
 that's not ideal either.
