Don't know about CA.pl, 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.
