Building nix on macOS with sandbox = true currently fails with a Operation not permitted error:

libc++abi.dylib: terminating with uncaught exception of type nix::SysError: error: --- SysError ---

When nix is executed in the sandbox, it tries to read the default NIX_SSL_CERT_FILE file, which is not in the allowed paths.

Since the sandbox has no network access, NIX_SSL_CERT_FILE is not needed and can point to a non existent file.
