Don't know about, but try doing it manually. You should first edit 
the openssl.conf, make a directory structure for your CA, setup files... 
(man ca) then do something like this:

openssl req -new -x509 -keyout ca.key -out ca.pem -days 3650

Look around; there are many tutorials, guides, a Linux HOWTO... on the 
net, it's not related to FreeBSD.
