To create "root" self-signed CA certificate you need to run this command:

openssl req -x509 -newkey {rsa|dsa}:arg -keyout your-new-key.pem \
   -out your-new-cert.pem

I think that there is a target to run this in the openssl makefile but
I never tried it (using SSLeay before this target appeared ;)
