Would it be easier to just convert the cert and private key to DER
format on another box (that has the openssl binary)?

# For the cert:
openssl x509 -in certfile.pem -inform PEM -outform DER -out certfile.der

There should be some other openssl mini-utility that does the same
conversion for private keys, but I can't find it.  The conversion itself
should be as simple as base64-decoding the data after the first blank
line in the PEM file and before the -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----

Then use the certfile.der and decoded-base64-data files as blobs.
