i believe the problem is that solaris doesn't have /dev/random or
/dev/urandom so there is no entropy source for crypt programs to use.
you need to get an entropy source. the one i use is called andirand (and
i use it cause it was the first one i found) is at:
it works to compile openssl and gnupg etc, but i can't vouch for how good
an entropy source it really is.
