GnuPG 2 includes a script called gpgsm-gencert.sh that can be used to 
generate an X.509 certificate request. I don't think gpgsm can be used 
to generate certificates; from gpgsm's man page:

              This  command  will  only  print  an error message and 
direct the user to the gpgsm-gencert.sh
