ok, so at this point I'm not certain whether this is 2 separate problems or
just one, with weird symptoms. I know now that I don't have my ssl_ca set
right in config, since keyclient isn't generating anything, but I'm not sure
if this is what's causing the cgi to crash. Disregarding the uid error for a
moment, is a crash upon loading index.cgi the expected behavior assuming
that keyserver is not working (due to it not having its key successfully
generated)? Or would I normally be getting an error message telling me about
the keyserver problem, meaning that the cgi crashing is a separate issue?
As far as the uid thing goes, apache is currently owned and run by root...
I'm not sure what else to check for.
As to the ssl_ca problem - can someone give me an example of what yours is
set to? I really have no idea what is expected in this field - I tried
giving it the path to my ssl.crt directory... I tried giving it my
ca-bundle.crt, neither worked.

Actually, the "nobody" user is whatever it wants to be. On Solaris
(SunOS >= 5), it's generally 60001, on SunOS < 5, it was 65534, on AIX
5.1 it's 4294967294
the real answer to who nobody is: getpwnam("nobody").pw_uid
(not that such code would work, but anyway..)

That would be my guess: apache is set to an explicit uid instead of a
