Bug#384595: make-ssl-cert fails when $HOME not set

Package: ssl-cert
Version: 1.0.13
Severity: minor

As the default openssl config specifies the use of $HOME, when this is 
not set the openssl call within make-ssl-cert fails.

In the template "/usr/share/ssl-cert/ssleay.cnf" $HOME is used to set 
RANDFILE, but this is also set by make-ssl-cert before the openssl call, 
so perhaps the line in the template can simply be removed.

Otherwise perhaps HOME=/tmp could be added to the template before 
the RANDFILE line as a fallback.
