What does the p7b file look like?

And the .cer file, and the .pfx file?

Are any of them ascii, with a "BEGIN PKCS7" or "BEGIN CERTIFICATE"

from crl2pkcs7's man page, in the notes section:

       The output file is a PKCS#7 signed data structure
       containing no signers and just certificates and an
       optional CRL.

       This utility can be used to send certificates and CAs to
       Netscape as part of the certificate enrollment process.
       This involves sending the DER encoded output as MIME type

       The PEM encoded form with the header and footer lines
       removed can be used to install user certificates and CAs
       in MSIE using the Xenroll control.
