No need to copy

Just lauch Keychain Access and choose Add keyring... from the File menu. Then go to /System/Library/Keychains and add the X509Anchors file and you can edit it directly (after entering an admin password).

Also worth to notice is that this is the only place root certificates can be to be valid. In 10.3 Mail will have the possibility to sign with certificates, but only if you have the root certificate installed. Once you have that you create a private key and a certificate with your email in the subjectAltName. Then you import them with certtool i and you're ready to go.

Certificates takes some trying and failing to learn, it's not something for the casual user. Typically it's not that useful to make your own root certificate, as you can only use it with others who have the same one, which means they must trust you not to trick them (because you can if they have your root certificate installed).
