I just tried this in the WikiSandbox on pmwiki.org and the following
appears to work fine:
openssl pkcs12 -export -in certificate.crt -inkey private.key \
-certfile int.pem -out certificate.pkcs12
I'm guessing there may be a recipe or local customization on your site
that is causing the backslashes to disappear.
