If but someone would pay for me to take a junket overseas for a conference. 
I'm in Sydney. Shouldn't you guys schedule these conferences in exotic 
locations such as Australia? We have beer here too you know.

I did achieve a certificate, but not without some gnashing of teeth. There 
was mention of a "make certificate" (in the apache source bundle?), but 
the /manual/ssl/ssl_faq gave a ritual which ended in a requirement to use a script; finally I found that in the mod_ssl SOURC bundle. A SuSE 
sharedoc README has just told me about the existence of a gensslcert script 
too, which probably would have been easier.

It's all about learning. I'm not bitter.
