I have a problem with openssl on 1.5.1_ALPHA:
when I try to generata a RSA key:
openssl genrsa -out /usr/pkg/etc/httpd/ssl.key/server.key 1024
it looks and seems to never terminate. Ktrace shows that it loops reading
data from /dev/urandom; each read returns 4088 bytes.
Systems spends more than 98 CPU time in kernel.

This is an i386, SCSI disks behing siop.
I ran the same command on a similar machine running 1.5, no problems.

Any idea ?
