[Openswan Users] Openswan on FC5 64bit

I'm having trouble installing openswan on a fully up to date install of 
Fedora Core 5's x86_64 distro. When I either:
 install the RPM or run

ipsec newhostkey --output /etc/ipsec.d/local.secrets --bits 2048

the process hangs while generating the key. I have waited 15+ minutes 
with no success. The only possible thing I can find is that if I cat 
/dev/random it sits and doesn't return any data at all.

Has anyone had any experience with this issue?
