I dont know anything to do it automatically, but I've made a few self
signed certs using the following:
# make the certificate request
openssl req -new > your.domain.csr
# remove the password
openssl rsa -in privkey.pem -out your.domain.key
# sign it (good for 2 years)
openssl x509 -in your.domain.csr -out your.domain.cert -req -signkey
your.domain.key -days 730
If you want a .pem file, like debian apache-ssl does, you need to cat
the .cert >> onto the .key file, afaicr.
This worked for me, ymmv.
