#35 twadmin hangs generating keys on openbsd 3.5


I've compiled tripwire on openbsd 3.5 (using i386-unknown-openbsd). Everything goes well until I try to create one of the keys. After entering the passwords, the program displays "Generating key (this may take several minutes)...", however even after having consumed 6 hours of CPU, nothing else happened. The machine is a K6/2 350 with 128 MB RAM, so that should not be the problem.
Does anybody have any hint?

    Please try the following. Go to the site
    www.frenchfries.net/paul/tripwire. Download the latest
    version of the code 'tripwire-portable-0.9.tar.gz' and try
    compiling and running again. Follow these instructions:

    1. download gzipped source code
    2. download GNU make, compile and install
    3. download gcc/g++ 3.3.2, libstdc++-3.3.2 (and install)
    4. gzip -d tripwire-portable-0.9.tar.gz
    5. tar xvf tripwire-portable-0.9.tar
    6. export CXX=/usr/local/bin/eg++ (I use ksh)
    7. ./configure --enable-static CXXFLAGS="-O -Wall -pipe
    8. gmake (use the GNU make)
    9. gmake install

    I'm in the process of writing an up to date article on how
    to make this work (I'm doing this from memory right now).
    I've worked with Paul Herman for the last 18 months testing
    code he has improved upon. It's now working on OpenBSD,
    Linux, AIX, and Solaris. I've tested/used this code from
    OpenBSD 3.3 to OpenBSD 3.6. If you have questions let me
    know (tewing@verizon.net)
