[gnutls-help] seek error in in config file

I tried to feed the config to certtool without writing it do disk:

function generate_ca_cert ()
  local CA_KEY="$1"
  local CA_CRT="$2"
  certtool --generate-self-signed \
    --template <(ca_config) \
    --load-privkey "$CA_HOME"/"$CA_KEY" \
    --outfile "$CA_HOME"/"$CA_CRT"

This throws the following error:

error parsing command line: /dev/fd/63: seek error in in config file

Why is it necessary to seek the config file?
