Success! :-) (at least on my local machine, the server will have to wait 
until tomorrow).

The advice on the PHP page about openssl installation is indeed right: 
the problem was that a valid openssl.cnf file was missing. Funnily 
enough I couldn't find a single such file on my Mac, although ZendServer 
pretends to have installed PHP with openssl support. Actually openssl 
can work, but the openssl.cnf is necessary when trying to generate 
public/private key pairs.

What I finally did is the following:

1) I installed openssl using MacPorts
2) I created a symbolic link from the place where PHP expected the 
openssl.cnf to be (in my case /usr/local/zend/ssl/) to where it actually 
was (/opt/local/etc/openssl/).

After that I could generate the key pair for the caretaker instance. As 
a bonus it solved a problem which had been bugging me for a few days: I 
couldn't log into my local TYPO3 dev install using rsaauth. Quite 
logically the cause was the same.

I will add a note to the bugtracker issue with pretty much was I said 
here. I think this situation should be described in the caretaker manual.

Again, thanks for your pointer Michiel, you made a happy man tonight ;-)
