Here's the syntax I use:
/usr/bin/cfgmaker --if-template=iosv3.iftemplate --ifref=name
--interfaces --host-template=iosv3.template --subdir=west/HOSTNAME
--username='obfuscated' --authkey='0xReallyLongHexString'
--authproto='sha' --privkey='0xAnotherLongHexString' --privproto='des'

I think if you add the '=' it will work...
