Description of problem:
When using the genkey program to generate a self signed it is only
good for 30 days. In looking at the script it is nor possible to
change this short of editing the script by hand. What good is a 30 day
ssl cert. IMO  the certs should be good for at least a year or better
yet I should be able to specify the length myself.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run genkey program and generate an ssl key

Actual Results:  I got an ssl cert that was only good for 30 days

Expected Results:  I expected it to be good for at least a year, or
better yet I should be able to specify it on the command line.

Adding a --days flag for this would be reasonable.  The point of
genkey is really for CSR generation, where a self-signed cert is a
temporary stop-gap until you receive the real CA-signed cert back.
