   Hi.  I'm trying to do gpg --gen-key on a FreeBSD system from a
   remote terminal (telnetted in) and, when it gets to the end and
   tries to generate the key, it complains that it's not getting enough
   entropy and NEVER completes.  I mean NEVER.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

You need to have your system create more entropy for /dev/random.  See
"man rndcontrol"
