CA.pl is not installed by default. It is just a perl script which you
could move to /usr/local, BUT...
CA.pl (and CA.sh) are just wrappers around openssl's `ca' command. See
the CA section of openssl(1) for info on how to use it. I suspect you do
not even need CA.pl.
If you are trying to set up sendmail/STARTTLS there is a man page
(starttls(8)) which documents the process (without using CA.pl).
